How does the school keep Parents/Carers of SEND children informed about their progress?

Handale Primary provides regular feedback to parents/carers about the progress of all pupils. In addition the school operates an ‘open door’ policy that allows parents/carers to speak to their child’s teacher or a member of the senior leadership team whenever they desire.

The school places great significance on its relationship with parents/carers and recognises that the successful education of a child requires a real home/school partnership to be established. All parents/carers of pupils at Handale Primary School receive:

  • Termly parent/carer consultation evenings
  • Detailed annual report to parents/carers
  • Details about the targets set for their child
  • Opportunity to see their child’s teacher whenever necessary
  • Opportunity to see a member of the school’s leadership team whenever necessary
  • Advice and guidance on how to support their child’s learning at home
  • Invitations to events involving their child

Depending on their individual needs, parents/carers of a child with SEND may also receive:

  • Daily verbal reports on progress
  • Half termly provision map outlining the details of the support provided for their child.
  • Opportunity to meet with the school’s SENCO to discuss the progress of their child.
  • Short term written reports on progress
  • Letters in support of applications for medical support/social care
