Pupil Consultation & SEN Processes

When a child has been identified as requiring additional support  a Personal Provision Plan (PPP)is created.  These include targets and strategies to support their achievement. The process of creating the PPP reflects the Graduated Response outlined below. All processes within Park Brow school put the child at the centre of decisions around their support.

Consulting Our SEN Pupils

Ensuring that all children attending  Park Brow Primary School receive provision that maximises their enjoyment and achievement is central to all we offer. Consultation with families is key to securing success in this area.

The SEND children attending our school are aged 4-11 years so consulting with them to seek their views about how we are meeting their needs has to be age appropriate, especially when many often have communication difficulties.

We use the following strategies:

  • Have regular meetings and discussions with parents about what we have planned for their child and how to link this with interests and passions demonstrated at home
  • Ensure Pupil views are captured as part of the EHCP Review process
  • Pupils attend their interim and Annual Reviews
  • Make close observations during school to identify the types of activities and experiences that most engage each child so these can be developed further and be used inform future planning
  • Pupil Voice for SEN children is part of the school monitoring system. Pupils are consulted termly regarding every aspect of their learning and feelings around school.
  • Involve SEND children with planning their own activities and encouraging them to share what they would like to learn and participate with
  • Pupils work alongside staff to create their own pupil profile and passport for a shared understanding of behaviour.
  • Extend any resources that they show a preference for
  • Most importantly, ensure the children with SEND are happy, motivated and make expected levels of progress throughout their time in school.
