All expressions of concern will trigger a further investigation of the pupils’ needs.  Parents/carers will be informed of the outcome and invited to contribute and make comment. When changes are agreed to SEND status parents/carers will be informed in writing. The Academy will inform parents/carers and children about the LA’s information, advice and support service.
