We are the SEND, Information, Advice and Support service. If you have a child with special educational needs, trying to get the best advice and help may seem like a confusing and daunting experience. We provide confidential, impartial information from education law on disability, health and social care to help parents/carers, children and young people in making informed choices enabling them to play an active role in relation to educational decisions.
We can offer support if you have concerns with or without an Education, Health and Care Plan in place for the child or young person. The service works with Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools, Academies and Post 16 settings, to promote positive engagement with parents/carers, children and young people. The service also work with alternative provisions as well as special schools and mainstream.
We support parents, children and young people to ensure their views, wishes and feelings are heard.
