Special Educational Needs reform
As from the 1st September 2014 the Department for Education have introduced reforms to the way support is provided to children with Special Educational Needs. These reforms are very wide reaching and impact significantly on how we work with parents and support children.
Surrey have produced a 'Local Offer'. Surrey's Local Offer includes leisure and activity providers, health and care services, education providers and support groups. The Local Offer simply aims to pull information about available services into one place and make it clear and accessible for you and your family. You can find out more by clicking the link below.
All schools must have a SEN Information report. What is a SEN Information Report?
• The SEND Information report is a practical guide for parents in how SEN is supported on a daily basis, who to contact and how to find out more about the school’s approach to SEN. To access the report, please click on the link below.
In the first instance, parents are encouraged to talk to their child’s class teacher. Further information and support can be obtained from the school’s Inclusion team members. A copy of the school’s complaints procedure can be found on the school website . The complaints procedure will outline the formal steps the school will take in handling each complaint. Where a resolution between the parent and school cannot be reached the parents will be advised to seek external support through SSIASS (Surrey SEND Information, Advice and Support Service) at firstname.lastname@example.org
