SEND Services Team

 

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.

Parental and Pupil Voice is of significant importance to us and this is reflected in our information gathering, advice, strategies given, and follow-up work. We adopt a multi-agency approach to ensure holistic, child-centred outcomes.

SEND Services support in the areas of Cognition and Learning (which includes Specific Learning Difficulties e.g. Dyslexia), Sensory and Physical, Communication and Interaction (which includes Speech and Language Difficulties, and Autism), Social, Emotional and Mental Health.

Impact of support (Submitted by Record Owner)
Just like to say a massive thank you for all your help and support this year, look forward to working with you this coming year. Feedback following our referral was really positive from parents. When I went through the report with Mum she was relieved that she now knew what to do and what the issues were. She found it really helpful and is pleased that the feedback will also go with him to high school. Strategies are already in place here and are having a positive impact. Thank you!
