Parents

“It would not be an understatement to say all of you have turned my son's life around.” July 2014

All our staff welcome contact with parent(s)/carer(s) and families and are always happy to take time to talk over any issue. The Headteacher has an initial discussion with parent(s)/carer(s) of day-pupils and regular in-patients, about the education and support their child will receive from the school.

Parents of day school, long-stay or regular recurring pupils meet the Headteacher of the school to discuss the types of support available. Where appropriate, the Headteacher will organise a liaison meeting involving parents and representatives from the various professionals supporting the pupil. A Multi-Agency Plan is drawn up to guide the pupil's education programme. This describes the pupil's individual needs, outlines generic education targets and identifies strategies and the specific human and material resources which will be put in place to support the achievement of these targets.Good, open communication with families, through personal contact and by telephone, is part of our service. We keep parent(s)/carer(s) of day-pupils informed about their child’s progress informally and via a termly review meeting; attended by professionals from the child’s mainstream school and other agencies, as relevant, which ensures children experience consistency in their education and care.
