‘Growing and learning together to be the best we can be’

How do children have a say?

Children with SEND are encouraged to share what they think their needs are, consider how they learn best, the support they need and what they think their targets should be. Children are usually invited to share their views by completing a pupil voice form. This may take place when a child is referred to the pastoral team for support, before a review meeting or at any point during the year where it is deemed important to seek their views. This may be completed with the SENCO, ASD lead, family support worker or class teacher. The school conducts many baseline and post intervention questionnaires to gain the children’s views on their learning before and after an intervention. Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) are encouraged to contribute their views by attending reviews, or views are gained before the meeting.
