SEN Coffee afternoons,
We will be hosting regular SEN coffee afternoons until the end of term. This is an opportunity for parents to speak with each other, share ideas, concerns and useful skills, whilst providing the chance to speak with the school's SENCo and learn about provision in school for children with SEN and how it is managed.
This special time will also enable parents to support one another and provide a support network for parents both in and outside school.
We hope to see you soon.
N. Lynam SENCo.
Useful website links and
telephone numbers for parents
We hope to post links regularly, which parents may find helpful. If you wish to discuss any of the issues raised in these links, please do not hesitate to contact the school to speak to a member of staff.
Winston's Wish is the UK's childhood bereavement charity. We support children and their families after the death of a parent or sibling.
