We will continue to work towards positive pupil involvement in decision-making related to their development. Most pupils have their own views on how they see themselves and their own needs. From an early age, children and particularly those with SEN should be actively involved at an appropriate level in discussions about their education, target setting via IEP’s, annual review arrangements and successful strategies. Pupils at Hope High School have an active role in school development through school council, online improvement questionnaires and termly pupil feedback. Children should be encouraged to share in the recording process and in monitoring and evaluating of the school as a whole and their own performance so that every achievement is given a sense of worth, developing confidence and self-esteem. As all pupils are working towards setting achievable targets for themselves within the class then this can only be viewed as a natural extension.
