Families

Our commitment to Families:

  • Regular and productive two way communication with parents/carers to feed in views and discuss progress
  • Ongoing involvement in decisions about their child’s education. Eg. the development and reviews of plans including IEPs and EHC plans
  • We will provide information that is clear and easy to understand
  • Support parents / carers to find out about other services and information

Our trained Family Footings Facilitators work closely with the young people at Quest Academy and their families to ensure that their opinions and perspectives are reflected in how we support them at school. They introduce families to the benefits of using person centred thinking tools and other skills to assist parents when they are interacting with professionals involved in their children’s lives. 

Parents tell us that person centred thinking can help families to:

  • Feel listened to
  • Be more in control of their lives
  • Work in partnership with services to find the best outcome for their child
  • Feel more connected into their local community
  • Express their aspirations for their life both now and in the future
