Your child will have two formal opportunities at Parents’ Evenings to meet with your child’s class teacher to discuss strengths, weaknesses, progress, etc. Further opportunities to meet with the class teacher can be made throughout the year if you or the class teacher has any further concerns.
A child identified on the SEND register as having SEN Support will also have these same opportunities with the addition of discussing and reviewing targets in the child’s IEPs. Additional SEN Support meetings may be required throughout the year especially when there is the involvement of outside professionals/agencies. These may also be called ‘Team Around the Child’ meetings (http://microsites.lincolnshire.gov.uk/children/practitioners/team-around-the-child-tac/), ‘Child In Need’ meetings or ‘Child Protection’ (http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/parents/family-support/safety/child-protection/) meetings, or ‘Early Support Care Coordination’ (http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/parents/disability-and-sensory-impairment/early-support-care-coordination/) meetings.
If your child has an EHC Plan then they will have reviews on a minimum of a yearly basis to discuss in detail the individual needs of your child and ensuring the right provision is in place.
For some children with SEND a home-school communication book can be a good link for both parties to learn more about your child on a daily basis ranging from any concerns, updates on positive learning and behaviour, etc.
