A foundation school
The parents and child (where age allows) will be involved in all stages of the discussion and decision making about the type of support and how much support is given. We do not want children to become dependent on adult support so it is key to consider this when making decisions about the type of interventions required. The class teacher and learning support assistant (LSA), working with the child, as well as the special educational needs coordinator (SENCO) will consider the needs of the child as well as the views of the child and parents. Occasionally outside support is sought and they will also have a perspective on this.
