Parent/Carer Engagement:
We encourage parents to be involved in their child's education and support the school with homework and daily reading practice. In addition to this, children with SEND may have specific activities to work on at home. We encourage regular contact between home and school and encourage parents to come and talk to us if they have any concerns abut their child's learning. Parents are invited to discuss their child's progress with the class teacher and/or the SENDCo on a termly basis. In addition, they have the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress at Parent Consultation meetings, and parents are welcome to arrange informal meetings with teachers as the need arises. Where daily or weekly communication is agreed to be beneficial, a 'communication book' or a 'positive pages book' can be put in place.
