The review process has been updated to incorporate a more pupil centred approach. Before the review takes place the pupils are taken through a PowerPoint demonstration with staff support. Pupils feel comfortable in sharing their views, when in the main review the presence of parents and other adults might inhibit their contribution.
There are action slides in between each slide so any actions that need to be taken before or after the review can be documented and acted on immediately. All information is documented throughout the review allowing the pupils comments that were added previously to be updated and/or changed along with any additional information from parents/ social workers/ medical representatives, etc.
The reviews last for 45 minutes and this is made clear at the start of the review through several slides laying out ground rules, etc. The fact that the slides already have information on provides active prompts for discussion, keeping the review flowing and on time. Parents have stated they feel this review process is a positive experience.
Mr & Mrs Rodgers said they felt so proud of how the boys had done, with many parents leaving feeling very proud and applauding the work the school had done to develop their children.
