Q12: How will we involve your child in decisions about their education?

We aim to involve all children in our school in the evaluations and implementation of their own education. For children and young people with Special Educational Needs we use a variety of strategies to support this including:
•Involve child or young person in setting their own targets where appropriate.
•Self-assessment during learning activities.
•Having a range of equipment available for the child or young person to choose to use.
•Ensuring the child or young person works with a range of different partners.
•Ensuring the child or young person has a designated adult to go to if they need help.
•Pupil conferencing.
•Opportunities to be involved in running for the school council 
•Medical alert cards.
•Independent access to visual timetables.
•Access to learning breaks
•Writing Emotional, Social and Physical Development Care Plan (ESPD)
•Visual timetables.
