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?


  • Your child will have their own targets that have been devised by the class teacher and child with support from the SENCo and you as 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 a 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.
  • It may be also useful for a child to have a home/school book in which messages about your child’s day can be recorded or issues that may have happened at home which could affect learning, which can be relayed to the class teacher
