  • I would like more opportunities to come into his class and see him in his school environment
  • I live a long way from school but would like to be able to see my son in class

We did:

  • Families offered the opportunity to attend end of year sports or sensory events
  • Two Reading Brunches held during the Spring Term
  • Autism workshop for families
  • M@L production attended by families

There will be a higher focus during the next academic year on family workshops to support parents and carers with their child’s learning

  • Communication needs to be focus.
  • Day to day communication from staff around health needs could be improved
  • Communication needs improvement.
  • Need to work on listening to parents a bit more, acting on what we say

We did:

  • Annual Review meetings and End of Year meetings were offered both in person and remotely to support families to attend in the way that works best for them
  • Communication takes many forms including letters home (hard copy if required), texts, emails from class regarding the child’s day, personal diary for 6th form pupils as appropriate, Tapestry, meetings and phone calls.
  • Communication with families policy to be written which will have minimum expectations of both the school and families
