How will the school and I know if my child is doing well?

How will the school and I know how my child is doing and how will you help me to support my child’s learning?


  • You will have the opportunity to meet with your child’s class teacher and SENCO during the autumn and spring term Parent Consultations and you will receive a written report at the end of the academic year.
  • Teachers are available on the playground at the beginning and the end of the day for brief conversations
  • Teachers are available to meet parents before or after the school day by appointment.  Parents can contact the school office to arrange these meetings.
  • Your child will have their own targets as part of their My Support Plan (MSP) which will be discussed by the class teacher, the child, the SENCO and the parents.  
  • At St John’s, we believe for your child to be successful they must be involved in the process of setting their own targets and in how they learn.  As a target is met, new ones are devised to establish an ongoing learning process.  Each target is created to be very specific, measurable, challenging and achievable. 
  • You will be invited to an MSP review each term to discuss progress, learning strategies and any issues that have arisen.  This will be with the class teacher and with our SENCO.  This is an opportunity for you to discuss how you can support your child’s learning at home so that everybody is working together to move the child’s learning forward.
  • You will also have the opportunity to meet with our SENCO at regular SEND Drop-in sessions.  This is an opportunity to discuss progress being made or any concerns the school or you may have.  If you find it difficult to meet with the SENCO due to other commitments, this can be done over the phone or via email.
