The class teacher or the SENCO can offer practical advice and ideas of ways that you can help your child at home.
The class teacher can provide a home/school communication book which your child will bring home daily, so that comments from parents and the teacher can be shared.
If your child is on the Special Needs register they will have a Support Plan or be in a small support group with specific targets. This will be discussed with you at a Parents Evening. The targets set are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time scaled) targets, with the expectation that the child will achieve the targets by the time it is reviewed.
If your child has complex special educational needs or a disability they may have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP), which means that a formal meeting of parents and teaching staff will take place annually to review your child’s progress.
Recommendations from external agencies e.g. a speech and language therapist, will be shared with you so that strategies can be implemented at home and school.
If a class teacher needs to discuss an issue with you, it will be done privately and confidentially and strategies to support your child will be offered.
