How do we consult with and involve parents and pupils?

Working collaboratively with parents and pupils is very important to all staff members at Lark Rise Academy.  Pupil’s views are gathered through the creation of One Page Profiles which detail their likes, what other people think about them and how they like to be supported. Meetings with parents to review and plan next steps of SEND support are held termly for children in Key Stage One and Two and every 6-8 weeks for children in the Early Years.  Parents’ views are always listened to, recorded and respected during these meetings to collaboratively agree appropriate support for the pupil.  In line with this timescale, conversations are held with pupils to gather their views about how they would like to be supported.  The format of these conversations are dependent on the pupil’s age and stage of development.  A child with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will have this plan reviewed annually in Key Stage One and Two or twice a year in the Early Years.  Parents and pupils views are gathered before the meetings and parents are invited to fully participate in the review meeting.  This meeting is in addition to the child’s SEND Support Plan meetings.
