Enabling every child to be the best version of themselves

Support for families

Working in partnership with parents

Parents know their child best, working in partnership with parents is essential!


Termly review meetings

Every term a meeting is held between parents and staff in The Willows, which may include class teachers and Mrs Miller as the teacher in charge. Where appropriate representatives from SISS, EP and START may be in attendance.  At the review meeting we will ensure that parent and pupil voice is shared and gathered and progress against your child’s targets is discussed, along with next steps agreed.


Annual EHCP review

Each year a meeting is held between parents, staff in The Willows, additional external agencies and START in order to review your child’s EHC plan, both its content and the specific targets and provision required.


Informal coffee mornings or evenings

We offer termly sessions either in a morning or after school as a chance for parents to get together, to chat and support one another and talk and share with staff. Sometimes relevant speakers may be invited or training for parents organised around a specific topic. If you have any suggestions for these sessions please share your thoughts.


External support for families:

There are a range of external providers who may be able to support you with your understanding of your child’s needs, advice for how to support your child at home or support for attendance at various external clubs.
