SIMS 7 – School Census New User - 14 September 2020

This course is for staff with responsibility for preparing the statutory census return

We can help to work alongside the SENDCo to ensure that all children are correctly assessed and help set up Provision Maps to monitor all children’s progress.


Once you have applied for a statutory assessment they will contact you within 6 weeks to say whether they plan to assess the child or not.


It is a requirements that parents are consulted on the SEND policy. One way to ensure this is to invite parents to a coffee morning. Have key questions written on flip chart paper around the room and ask parents to contribute by either telling you (and you scribe), writing directly onto the paper or adding their contributions via post it(may parents find writing directly onto the flip chart intimidating).
