Working With Parents


At Inmans Primary School we believe that communication between the school and parents is vital to provide the best support for your child. We operate an ‘open door’ policy. This means that we welcome you to phone, email or come in to meet with us at school as often as you feel is helpful to discuss your child’s progress or any concerns you have.

Consulting with Parents/Carers

Parents and carers are always welcome to come in and discuss your child’s progress or any concerns you have. It is important to us that we work with you and your child, as a team, to secure the best possible outcomes and teachers will meet termly with parents and children to secure this aim. We are also able to sign post you to various outside agencies which may be able to support you and your child at home/school or offer further advice.

Termly Review Of Progress

If your child has Special Educational Needs, you will be invited to a Termly review meeting where you can contribute to discussions on your child’s strengths, needs and desired outcomes and the strategies and resources which will be used to work towards these.

Every child with an identified special educational need works with a member of staff to create a profile, this details what the child feels are their strengths, needs and the most effective ways of engaging and supporting them.

Once a child has been identified as having SEN, the class teacher will invite parents to a meeting to:

  • Let them know that their child is being placed at SEN Support
  • Discuss assessments that have been completed
  • Together agree a plan and provision for the next term
Involving Your Child

All meetings in school are now person centred. Children are asked to contribute towards their termly review of progress and their one page profile by identifying what they feel they are good at and what helps them learn. Furthermore, the targets set are directly related to class literacy or numeracy targets to ensure the targets are meaningful and ‘smart’. If a child’s area of need is emotional/behavioural these targets are discussed and agreed with the child. Any targets are written in child friendly language which can be easily understood.
