How will Hornbill School keep me informed?

Parent Consultations are planned each term. The meetings are an opportunity for parents to meet with class teachers and Nepali Specialist Teachers to discuss the progress of their child. Parents of children receiving additional support also meet with the Inclusion Leader or Support Inclusion Leader to review progress and identify next steps through additional support and strategies.

Small group support and the strategies used are detailed on an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which sets out staffing, timings and timescales for intervention. Support is organised under the following categories:

  • Behavioural, Social and Emotional;
  • Cognition and Learning;
  • Literacy;
  • Maths;
  • Sensory and Physical;
  • Communication and Interaction.

Support for additional needs is recorded in an Individual Education Plan (IEP). This plan is in place for up to one term and is then reviewed and replaced (if appropriate) with a new IEP. IEPs are clearly linked to progress and focus on small step targets (SMART targets) with measurable outcomes. You will be asked to contribute to the development of your child’s IEP and to sign it showing you understand and support the school’s provision for your child.

IEPs are important documents on transfer to another school as they inform the new setting about your child’s needs and provision.
