How will I know how well my child is doing

The class teacher will meet with the parents at the beginning of the autumn term to discuss how your child has settled in.  At the beginning of spring term there will be a mid-year report to inform you about how your child is doing and next steps.  Later in the term there will be another opportunity to meet with the class teacher to discuss needs, support, and progress.  At the end of the academic year there will be a final year report.  There will also be half termly opportunities to discuss your child’s progress towards individual targets and share next steps.

We believe that your child’s education should be a partnership between parents and teachers, therefore we aim to keep communication channels open and communicate regularly, especially if your child has complex needs.

Your child may have an IEP/IBP in place to and therefore the targets set are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time scaled) targets with the expectation that the child will achieve the target by the time it is reviewed.  If your child has complex SEND, they will likely have an EHC (Education Health Care) plan which means that a formal Annual Review will take place to discuss your child’s progress and a report will be written. 

We also offer an open door policy, where you are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the class teacher or SENCO and discuss how your child is getting on.
