Guidance for Parents
If you have concerns about your child’s progress, please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with your class teacher.
If you think your child might have a special educational need, please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with your class teacher and the SENDCO.
We will listen carefully to your concerns and discuss appropriate actions to support your child. This might involve seeking the advice of other professionals if necessary.

Transferring from/to another school
If your child is joining us from another school, we will contact the SENCO at your child’s previous school and all information regarding additional or specialist support for you child will be passed on to us. Usually, a meeting or telephone conversation will take place to discuss your child’s needs and provision. We will also arrange a meeting with you, your child’s new teacher and the SENCO to discuss what their provision will look like at Micklefield.
Any funding your child received at their previous school will then be transferred to us, and we will be able to access any formal documents/records relating to your child via an online SEND portal.
If your child leaves Micklefield to join another school, or when transferring to High School, we will pass on any records and information about your child to their new school.
