Who do I Speak to?
What can I do if I have concerns about my child’s progress at school? These may be around, Reading, writing, numbers, social and emotional development, behaviour, communicating, physical or sensory.
- The first person to speak to about your concerns is your child’s class teacher.
- If you still have on going concerns you may wish to speak to your schools Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCO).
- If any special educational needs are identified your SENDCO will plan how to help your child with the involvement of both yourself and the class teacher. Your child’s help and progress should be recorded through an Achievement Plan (AP) or another way of recording their progress.
You may also find it helpful to contact Supportive Parents, your local Parent Partnership Service for Parents and Carers of children with Special Educational Needs, who can tell you how special educational needs are identified and assessed by schools and can offer information advice and support to parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN).
