How are parents involved in the school?

As well as routine parents’ evenings, new parents’ visits, open days, and information evenings, parents of students with SEND are involved in the following way:

·         Parents are contacted when concerns highlighted to the SENCO have been investigated so that parents are involved from the beginning of the identification process

·         Documents such as My Profile and Initial Needs Assessment notes are sent to parents so that they are fully informed of need identification and provision

·         Parents are always invited to My Plan and EHCP meetings where outcomes are decided upon and an action plan is put in place to meet the student’s needs and move them forwards in their learning.  Any external agencies involved with the student will also be present at these meetings

·         An SEND committee will be set up this year whereby parents and students will be able to join the SENCO and SEN Governor in reviewing policy, planning change and giving a perspective on how SEND provision at OMA feels to parents and students.

·         Parents are always welcome to contact the SENCO or their child’s teacher to communicate about SEND at our academy.
