We sent out 43 questionnaires and received 14 back so the return rate was low (33%). Each response is worth 7.14%

 

*Our records indicate the SENCO has provided IEPs to all but one pupil (this pupils has a medical statement not a Special Educational Need)

 

Most of the results are positive and very few parents answered No. We are pleased that 100% of parents that returned the questionnaire answered Yes or Mostly that their child is effectively supported by the school and that staff were approachable.  However, there is still a number of parents that answered “Don’t Know” so we will seek to review mechanisms for communicating with parents of pupils with SEN.

Comments:

My child is happy at school and I am happy with the extra support she receives.

As parents we have found ****’s teachers to be invaluable in his individual learning. Maybe meeting with SENCO and teacher together would also be helpful to parents.

When required we do arrange a separate review meeting with class teacher, SENCO, any external agencies and parents. We would  also be willing to arrange a meeting if a parents asked us to do so.

My daughter made significant progress with reading this year. Support worker seems to have excellent relationship with her. SENCO is very approachable.

I would like to take this opportunity to than everyone involved at Marine Park who have helped ***’s transition into to school go so smoothly and thank you for the amazing support that you have given to us and ***. His happiness is thanks to you all.

Look at alternative spelling strategies. Teach and use alternative Technology. Differentiate homework.

Our records demonstrate that this pupil receives a highly differentiated provision at both school and home based on the recommendations of an external assessment/report. We are happy to meet with parent/carers and discuss strategies and homework.
