At Woodlands we adopt elements of the Person Centred Planning (PCP) approach as part of the annual review meetings.
A PCP Review looks at what’s working and not working for our pupils, what’s important to them now and in the future, and also agrees any outcomes for change.
Person Centred Planning is about planning with the child or young person, rather than for them. It’s an approach that considers what’s important to them now, what they want for the future and the support required to get them there. This will be achieved with a team or circle of people to support them, including parents/carers and professionals.
Whilst Person Centred Planning focuses on the CYP foremost, parents/guardians have a valuable contribution to make. All families have legitimate concerns about the provision and support for their children that should be acknowledged and addressed. Person Centred Planning encourages this.
Person Centred Planning has been identified by the Welsh Government as an inclusive approach, which will be used to create Individual Development Plans for children and young people with Additional Needs.
