How can I communicate with the school to discuss Special Educational Needs?



The class teacher

If you have concerns regarding your child’s academic progress or their social, emotional and mental health needs then your first point of contact must be your class teacher. The class teacher is responsible for ensuring every child in their class receives high quality first teaching within the classroom environment that is adapted and personalised to meet the individual needs of every child. They will also monitor the progress of your child and plan for any additional support they may have. They are also responsible for ensuring your child’s individual needs are shared with and understood by relevant staff. 


The phase leaders

If you would like to discuss your child’s needs further then you can arrange to meet your phase leader. You can have the opportunity to meet the class teacher and the phase leader together.


The Special Educational Need Coordinator

The lead staff for SEND is Mr Thuhel and he is responsible for coordinating all the support for children with special educational needs (SEN) and ensuring the school’s SEND Policy is implemented in order to make sure all children get a consistent, high quality response to meeting their needs in school. They will also liaise with all the other people who may be coming into school to help support your child’s learning e.g. Educational Psychology, SEMT and Communication and Complex Team. 


The Head Teacher

You have the option to discuss your child’s needs with the Head Teacher, however we advise you initially meet with the class teacher or phase leader, then the SENDCO and if you still require further information you can arrange to meet the Head Teacher. The Head Teacher is always happy to meet with all parents to discuss any issues or concerns you have.

We welcome the full engagement of parents and carers and where necessary, seek support and advice from specialists outside school to ensure we develop and maintain a range of flexible resources to meet the needs of all children.
