Consultation with Outside Agencies


Consultation with Parents

Birkby Junior School is committed to working in close partnership with parents and carers. We believe that when home and school work together children thrive and make good progress in all aspects of their development.

This close partnership is particularly important for pupils with special educational needs. We work closely with parents and carers to identify and meet the needs of these pupils and make every effort to communicate regularly:

  • At the beginning and end of the school day
  • By telephone or text message
  • In writing ( a letter, short note or comment in your child’s Home School Diary)
  • During our Autumn and Spring Term Parent Consultation Evenings
  • At termly review meetings (if appropriate)

It is important that you share any concerns, complaints or information with your child’s classteacher or by contacting a member of our Additional Needs Team, who will listen to your concerns and be happy to help. Most problems can be resolved quickly and easily. 

Parents are also invited to contribute to our whole approach to SEN, for example, last academic year, a group of parents worked alongside our SENCO to review school's SEND policy. 

Consultation with Children

Each individual pupil with SEND is at the centre of all decisions that are made and school uses a person-centred approach when planning support and provision. Children are consulted regulalrly about their views and what is working for them in school. Children also attend their termly review meetings and contribute towards their targets. 

Children's views are recorded with them using a one page profile.
