How does our school involve other bodies, including health and social care bodies, local authority support services and voluntary sector organisations, in meeting children and young people’s SEN and supporting their families?
We have access to a wide range of professionals and outside agencies which we can consult regarding meeting children’s needs and supporting families. If we feel that referral to an outside agency would be beneficial for your child, we shall contact you to discuss this. A list of agencies can be viwed in our SEND Policy.
We can help parents to obtain independent advice and assistance from the SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS). SENDIASS provides confidential and impartial information, advice and support to parents and carers of children who have special educational needs, learning difficulties or disabilities.
