How do you communicate with parents/carers and how are they involved in decision making/planning?

Communication between school and parents is part of the daily life of the school. Families are actively involved in the school and have the opportunity to attend a variety of events including coffee mornings and clinic drop-ins.

 Families are actively encouraged to engage in supporting the pupils within the curriculum, after-school activities and on school trips. This helps promote a close relationship between home and school as well as bringing a range of experience into the learning environment of the students.

 

 We facilitate a range of Parent’s workshops and discussion groups. We work closely with Autism West Midlands, Inclusion Support, Changing Young Lives, and Making Learning Work.

 

 In addition, we have a Family Support Worker who works closely with parents and carers to offer support and advice in order to ensure that their child makes outstanding progress in their personal development.

 

 The school has a formal reporting process based largely on the timetable of annual reporting required by the EHCP. In addition to which, both education and therapy staff input reports as required by students for assessments and interventions.
