Special Educational Needs

Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-Ordinator is Mrs Elaine Ayton. She can be contacted by telephone on 01604 843780 or by email SENDCo.

Some children may require extra support during their school life either with learning difficulties or emotional or behavioural difficulties. If a child requires extra support we will always inform parents before drawing up a programme for them. Occasionally, with parental permission, we may call upon help from outside agencies.

The local authority also has services available for children with special educational needs and disabilities known as The Local Offer. Further information on The Local Offer can be found here.

The local authority also produce a newsletter – SNIX NEWS – for children with special educational needs or disabilities and their families.

As part of the Children and Families Act 2014, it is a legal requirement that all local authorities ensure children and young people aged 0 to 25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their parents have access to an impartial Information, Advice and Support Service (IASS). The services will give practical, factual and impartial information advice and support to enable children and young people and their parents to participate fully in decisions about education, health and social care.  Further details on the Information Advice Support Service can be found here.
