SEND Services Team
COVID-19 UPDATE: During Lockdown we continue to offer support both in settings and remotely.
SEND Services are a team of specialists who are skilled in assessment and support for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability.
The main focus of our work is to provide a range of support, training and advice, to schools and other educational providers and settings. SEND Services deliver the National SENCo Award through Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). This training is delivered in Stoke. Our time is spent with Senior Leaders, SENCOs, teachers and practitioners. Some of our work includes working directly with children and their parents or carers, young people, parent consultation sessions and groups of parents or forums.
Parents and SENCOs work closely together to achieve best outcomes and as a result SEND Services may be asked to provide individualised advice or direct work. SENCOs will always ask for Parental Agreement. We will provide feedback; this may be a report, a discussion or attendance at a review depending on circumstances.
SEND Services support in the areas of Cognition and Learning, Sensory and Physical, Communication and Interaction, Social, Emotional and Mental Health.
