Siobhan’s IEP is devised in collaboration between her parents, her class teacher, the SNAs and any relevant therapists. The IEP is devised at the beginning of the academic year and is reviewed on a termly basis.
The IEP identifies Siobhan’s strengths, needs, interests and talents and forms the basis of creating a personalised learning programme that is relevant, meaningful and motivating.
The IEP is a collaborative and student-centred document and there are planned opportunities for Siobhan to make a contribution to her IEP and to express her ideas and opinions and to reflect on her progress.
