Annual Reviews

Annual Reviews are held in accordance with government guidance, including the Code of Practice, to review progress and to ensure that the child's needs are being met and the school placement remains appropriate. Input is made by a range of professionals, a school report is included, and parental involvement is strongly encouraged. Where appropriate, other professionals may be invited to attend the Review Meeting.

A Transitional Review is held when a pupil is in year 9 and 11 in order to focus upon the young person's educational, social and health needs in the post-16 years, and to plan the transition from school to adult life. Pupils are involved in the review process as much as possible.

Combined health, education and social care plans are currently being introduced to replace Statements of Special Educational Needs.
