“St. Michael’s Church of England School, established upon Christian foundations, and living out the Christian faith, is committed to providing every child with an excellent education.”
We promote our Vision through the key words:
‘Create – Equip – Partner’
Engagement with Parents – Consultation Days
At St. Michael’s CE School we promote an inclusive culture where partnership and engagement with parents is very highly valued from the moment a child joins our school to the point when they transfer to Key Stage 3.
We recognise that a small minority of parents will have children who have additional specific needs that will involve our Inclusion Team who specialise in supporting those children who may have learning difficulties/ delayed learning or emotional needs. Our Inclusion Team therefore hold additional meetings on a 1:1 basis to discuss each Individual Provision Map (IPM) and also the Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP).
We feel it is very important to ensure that parents are kept informed of their child’s progress and development from the start of the academic year and through each subsequent term. In addition we have listed dates where Inclusion Information Workshop events are planned for the forthcoming academic year The dates of events are outlined in the link below formal dates.
Inclusion Parent Consultation Days
- Inclusion Consultation Days and Coffee Afternoons
- Inclusion Consultation Days for Parents and Carers take place once a Term and can be in person by visiting the school or virtually by a virtual Google Meet.
- These days follow a meeting with the Class teacher, Support Staff and pupils to discuss progress towards the previous targets, and to set new ones if needed.
- Parents are sent their child’s Provision Map, which outlines the support that will be provided before the Consultation so that these can be discussed at the meeting.
- If the times /days are inconvenient the Inclusion Team are flexible about providing alternative ones or virtually by a virtual Google Meet..
- The impact of these meetings is clear and positive. Children are able to discuss their targets with their parents, in the knowledge that all involved in their education and welfare have agreed to them.
- Parents are informed about timings and the amount and length of the interventions, and Class Teachers and Support Staff all have the same plans for each child who will be receiving support.
- Parents are overwhelming positive about these meetings and their involvement is greatly valued.
