Ds has complex SEN and has been excluded twice at school. Following the first exclusion a re-integration meeting was arranged as advised on the exclusion letter. The latest letter did not mention any re-integration meeting but ds was spoken to in a meeting with 2 staff when he returned to school. He asked why his parents were not in the meeting like last time but was advised that the council had changed their procedures and that parents did not have to attend . Is this likely? Surely parents should be present at this type of meeting? Would be grateful for any advice.
Phone the SENCo and ask what's what. Things are being changed constantly but you still need good and frequent communication with your SENCo. It is never, ever going to be good practise not to communicate with parents.
