If your child's school thinks that your child has a special educational need, they may tell you that they are being placed at School Action. This simply means that they will be given extra help within school to meet their needs.
The school will collect information about your child from the teaching staff. They will use this information to plan a programme of teaching and learning to meet your child's individual needs, sometimes this is called an IEP or Individual Education Plan.
The person responsible for doing this is usually the school's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), who will work closely with the class teacher.
Your views as a parent are important. Where possible, the school will try to actively involve you in discussions about meeting your child's needs and monitoring any progress they make.
School should keep you fully informed about the help your child is receiving and how you can support the work of the teaching staff.
