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).
