Consultation with Children and Young People with SEND
Teachers/SENDCO and Support Staff will work with children and young people to identify the provision needed to meet agreed outcomes. The provision is planned and interventions are allocated to individual needs. The children take an active role in setting their outcomes and discussing them with the Class Teacher/SENDCO. The children have regular meetings with staff to discuss their progress and support.
At Timothy Hackworth Primary School Pupil Voice is extremely important and forms an important part of our Rights Respecting Schools ethos. The recently formed Pupil’s Inclusion Action Group is an important new development in ensuring the voices of children with additional need are heard and acted upon.
Consultation with Parents and Carers of Children and Young People with SEND
We are committed to working with parents and carers to identify their child’s needs and support. Parents and carers will be involved throughout the process.
There is a range of ways this can be done, for example:
- Termly parents/ carers evenings;
- Ongoing discussions with a class teacher and/or SENDCO;
- An ‘open-door’ policy, where parents and carers are welcome to come into school to discuss any concerns they may have;
- Through regular reviews of their child’s SEND Support Plan/ EHC Plan.

SEND Parents and Carers Advisory Group
In addition to the above, at Timothy Hackworth Primary School there is a SEND Parents and Carers Advisory Group, where parents and carers of children with SEND are offered the opportunity to meet, together with the SENDCO and other parents and carers, to discuss and contribute to the development of SEND provisions in school.
