It’s really important that we all work together in partnership to make sure we get the best outcomes foryour child. To do this it requires trust, commitment and respect. It’s particularly important to developpositive relationships between everyone who is involved with your child or young person.

All partners have an important role to play in developing positive and constructive relationships withyour child or young person. This includes the local authority, schools, outside agencies as well as parents and families.

Various people ‘partner’ in providing an education for your child:

  • The school
  • The headteacher
  • The class teacher
  • Specialist teachers
  • The Local Authority
  • Health Specialists
  • and parents.

As part of the continuous cycle of helping your child, there are FOUR very important stages in meeting children’s Additional Learning Needs. This includes:

  • The identification and assessment of your child’s needs,
  • planning suitable provision,
  • implementing agreed actions with clear intended outcomes
  • and reviewing the provision to ensure it is meeting your child’s needs.
