Best practice examples of Personal Education Plans

Best practice examples of Personal Education Plans

I deliver education to medical needs young people on the internet. Do you have any 'best practice' examples of Personal Education Plans you could share with me? 

At CCHS we use a variety of formats to record planning and outcomes for individual students. The format we use is dependent on the nature of the work undertaken. We have developed these over the years and find that we revise and adapt regularly to ensure we can record the necessary information while aiming to limit time spent on duplicating information. CCHS uses a web based recording system.

My daughter has selective mutism

My daughter has selective mutism

I have been saying on and off for the past two years that my daughter has selective mutism but only in occasional situations outside home and at school. It’s perhaps gone on too long as it has not really been picked up by teachers.It came to a head on Wednesday when the head mistress gave a detention for not completing her maths work and only achieving one sum when to me this seemed harsh and also she must have been struggling to ask for help. Where do I get a formal diagnosis as for two years in her report they have labelled her stubborn and she is obviously uncomfortable in some situation. At home and in familiar surroundings she is fine but school isn't one of them. Please help!

It must be stressful for you all at present. The first thing we always suggest, if you haven’t already, is trying to talk directly to school, perhaps meeting with the SENCo to discuss your concerns. If you feel that you are not able to progress your concerns with school and you would like to talk to a Child and Adolescent Mental health (CAMHs) professional regarding your concerns you can pursue this through your GP. Alternatively you may find it helpful to call the Youngminds helpline: http://www.youngminds.org.uk/for_parents/parent_helpline We have had very positive feedback from families that have used this service.

My child is being bullied at school

My child is being bullied at school

My grandson who is 6 is being bullied at school. We have been in contact with the school but they don't believe it is happening. My daughter has been to the doctor where they have taken photos and given my grandson sleeping medicine. My daughter has taken my grandson to school today, and she heard the teacher telling one of the parents whose son is one of the ones bullying my grandson; it’s not your son which has upset my family. We are at our wits end now what to do and where to go for the support for my grandson. I would be grateful for any advice you can give us.

Sorry to hear about your upsetting situation and the difficulties with the school. The website below has some very useful advice under the “Getting Support from the School” section. http://www.bullying.co.uk/advice-for-parents/what-to-do-if-your-child-is-being-bullied/
