Personal Support Plans (PSP) to be returned by Monday 26th September

Personal Support Plans

If your child receives additional support to help them progress with their learning, you should have received an updated Personal Support Plan last week. This details their new targets which show the prioritised next steps for their learning. 

Alongside the targets, we have also sent a Pupil Profile form, which gives you the opportunity to let us know anything relevant about how your child best likes to learn. We really value this information and we appreciate the time that it takes you to complete this. 

Please can you read the PSP targets carefully, and sign and return one copy of the PSP by Monday 26th September.  We know that everyone is busy especially at the beginning of term, but these documents are important and your input and feedback can make a real difference in our understanding of how best your child learns.  We are really hoping that 100% of PSPs will be returned to us. 

As your child is settling into their new class, and, developing a relationship with their new class teacher, we don’t routinely offer a face to face meeting in September to discuss their new objectives. A chance for a 2 way conversation is available at the Parent Consultations in November.

However, if you have any concerns, feedback or there is something specific that you wish to discuss, then please feel free to make an appointment to discuss in more detail with myself. Please email me at:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.">This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange a time.
