SPARK What does the Ideal Annual Review look like? - Session 4 Person Centred Planning – Practical Solutions

Event/course Code EDU 19/276
Event/course type Training course / Workshop
Event Introduction The annual review process, in some schools, is restricted in purpose to being the time when the Education, Health and Care plan is reviewed. While this should form part of an annual review, it should be about so much more than this. The annual review process is a way of learning what is important to and for the pupil, and drawing upon the knowledge and experience of those who are important in the pupil’s life (including the family), with a focus on creating action plans.

A person-centred review offers the pupil a chance to attend an annual review meeting in a format that really is pupil-friendly, where they can be effectively included in the meeting and be listened to about what is working and not working for them in relation to school. The opportunity to think about their future, and to influence the action plan so that it addresses issues that are important to them rather than others, is really important.

This format also creates opportunity for parents to contribute to the annual review on equal terms with professionals, and to share their views of what is and isn’t working from their perspective, what is important to their child and how best to support them.
Event Content This is the last session in the recent series of centrally funded Annual review training and as such will be a chance to showcase some of the outstanding practice that we have in Kingston and Richmond.

This sessions is developed on the basis of the feedback from the previous sessions and will therefore provide an opportunity for modelling and sharing of good practice. A few selected schools/SENCos have agreed to share their current practice and experience of implementing the recent training and conducting Annual Reviews that are fully person centred. We will consider practical strategies that will support young people to develop strong self-advocacy skills over time. We will also be able to hear the views of some of our young people.

Delivered by a selection of SENCOs from Kingston and Richmond Schools, Annual Review Officers and Grace Over from AfC.
Event Learning Outcomes By the end of the session delegates will be able to:

• Feel confident about their role, responsibilities and ability to conduct person-centred annual reviews.
• Have a framework and model in mind for conducting a person-centred annual review.
• Be aware of the resources available for conducting person-centred reviews and where they could find more support and help.
