Frequently Asked Questions

WHO SHOULD I TALK TO IF I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY CHILD?

Your child's class teacher is always best placed to answer any questions you may have relating to any aspect of school life. They may consult with other staff members involved with your child. You can also contact our school SENCO - Vicki Bradford (deputy@holmeschapelprimary.cheshire.sch.uk)

WHAT TYPES OF SUPPORT WILL BE AVAILABLE TO MY CHILD? HOW WILL TEACHING BE ADAPTED?

There are many types of SEND support available at Holmes Chapel Primary School. These range from additional support in lessons to short 10 minute daily intervention sessions. Support for all children begins in the classroom with Quality First Teaching, where the class teacher plans adapted activities in all lessons including a range of learning styles and outcomes. If a teacher feels that a child needs more support, they will share this information with you as a parent/carer and outline and deliver initial provision. If progress remains a concern, the class teacher will forward the information over to the SENCo who will look into different types of support that your child may need. 

HOW WILL I FIND OUT ABOUT MY CHILD'S PROGRESS?

You can attend regular Parents Evenings throughout the school year. In addition, you can email the class teacher or call the school office to arrange an appointment to meet with the class teacher to discuss any concerns.

HOW CAN I SUPPORT MY CHILD?

Stay in regular contact with school. We want to work in partnership with parents/carers. Attend all parent meetings and support your child in following tasks and homework set by school. Encourage your child at all times and let us know of all successes outside of school. Always talk to your child’s class teacher if you have any concerns or worries about your child.
