1. How will I be involved in discussions about and planning for my child’s education?
If your child has been allocated a place at New Height’s High School (NHHS), parent(s) and carer(s) are invited to an admissions meeting with NHHS’ Parenting Engagement Worker.
During your child’s placement at NHHS all parent(s)/ carer(s) are provided with daily phone calls home to inform you of your child’s academic and behavioural progress during the school day, and to keep you up to date on how your child’s placement is progressing.
You can contact NHHS’ Parenting Engagement Worker at any time and arrange a meeting if you require so.
You can arrange to meet with your child’s form tutor, subject teacher and any of NHHS’ SLT at any time during your child’s placement.
When your child is approaching the final stages of his/ her placement at NHHS, a meeting will be arranged with a Local Authority (Social Inclusion) representative, NHHS’ SENCO and Parent Engagement Worker who will support you with choosing an appropriate future educational provision for your child.
2. How will school staff support my child?
After analysing information from your child’s previous mainstream school, Learning Support Assistants, Pastoral Staff and subject teachers will be made aware of your child’s learning and or behavioural needs.
Appropriate targets are set for all pupils and are periodically monitored and reviewed to ensure you and your child is kept up to date with progress made.
The school SENCO and Parenting Engagement Workers will also continually liaise with you and help identify appropriate outside agency support that he feels may help support your child’s education and wellbeing.
