How do we consult parents of children with SEND and involve them in their child's education?

At Otterburn we recognise that parents know their children best. Parents are always welcome to discuss their child and their views are respected and their concerns are taken into consideration at all stages of the SEND process.

You will see in many sections of this SEND Information report how the school consults with families and involves them.

We also:

  • Invite all parents/carers to meet with their child’s class teachers at two formal parent’s evenings during the year.
  • Invite parents of children identified as having SEND to a consultation once a term at which their child’s progress, Intervention and Support Plan (ISP) detailing the additional support, interventions and targets are discussed and agreed.
  • Have annual reviews for children with an EHC Plan.
  • Provide an annual written report
