14a. How will our child and young person be involved in the decisions about their learning?

  • All pupils are involved in termly Parent Consultation meetings with their parent and Class Teacher, where they are involved in discussions about progress towards their learning. During the meeting, with support if necessary, pupils lead the consultation sharing work which they are proud of and discussing their learning in subjects with the assistance of their work. Prior to the consultation meeting, pupils complete a self-assessment, again with support if needed. The self-assessment includes questions about behaviours for learning and growth mind-set. Children record what they are proud of what they have learned and what they have enjoyed.
  • Pupils with SEN, have Pupil Passports, which set out their individual targets and the support needed to achieve them. As part of this, pupils are consulted each term to review these and asked for their views, their goals, what is important to them, what they find challenging and how they can help themselves.
  • Pupils with more complex needs have an Education Health Care Plan, which sets out their outcomes, targets and the provision needed to achieve them. As part of this, pupils are consulted annually to review these and asked for their views. This includes asking them about what they feel has been working well, what they would like to change, what is important to them and what their aspirations are for the future. Pupil views are shared with the Local Authority as part of the child’s EHCP Annual Review.
  • The Senco or Senior Leadership Team may also gather pupil’s views during pupil interviews throughout the year.
  • Park Hall Academy, actively listen to the Pupil Voice of all children in school, including those with identified Special Educational Needs.
