SEND FAQs: What can I expect if a concern has been identified?

What can I expect if a concern has been identified?

 

You will be offered a longer one-to-one conversation with the class teacher. The SENDCo may be asked to join this meeting, with your permission. Additional activities to support your child will be discussed. These may be things to be done in school or that you can do with your child at home.

In some cases, the SENDCo might suggest some more specific assessment(s). These will be explained to you and the results shared, so next steps can be planned for. This may mean that your child is referred to an outside agency and/or given a ‘pupil passport’ (a document that shares your child’s information with future teachers, identifies individual targets and activities or support that will be in place to help them).
