Children with identified additional needs may have a Targetted Learning Plan (TLP) which will be shared and reviewed with you on a termly basis and the plan for the next term made. Parents/carers are invited to attend these meetings so that their views can be included regarding how their child should be supported.
More information on our approach to identifying and supporting children with SEN can be found in our SEN Policy, which you can read here.
