(Regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, economic, physical ability or educational needs).
· Children are identified through the use of assessment, speaking to parents, gathering information from professionals, all with consultation of the child’s parents.
· Three times a year parents of children with SEN meet with parents to discuss progress and how to meet the child’s needs. Parents can request additional meetings at any time and will be seen in a timely manner. Children with complex needs have more frequent meetings with staff.
