What can I expect to happen during meetings about my child's additional needs?

You may be invited to discuss your child’s needs at regular times throughout the year. If you have concerns or questions between scheduled meetings, you are welcome to contact the school at any time to arrange an appointment.

Key staff will be invited to attend the meetings, including outside agencies where appropriate. You are always welcome to bring someone with you for support. The meeting will usually be held in a quiet room in the school and staff will attempt to make this as informal and relaxed as possible.

The purpose of the meeting could be to:

  • Review your child’s current targets and set new ones together.
  • Review your child’s EHCP, if they have one (this will take place annually).
  • To inform you about your child’s progress and suggest ways in which you could support them at home.
  • To gather more information from you in relation to your child’s needs.
  • Provide an opportunity to meet with outside agencies who may work with your child (for example – Educational Psychologist).
  • To use a person-centred approach to support your child at important transition times.

The Special Educational Needs Disability Information Advice and Support service is an organisation that provides impartial advice, support and information to parents and children with SEN or disabilities about all aspects of special educational needs, in order that parents can make informed decisions in relation to their child’s education.
