Outside agencies and useful contacts
As a school we strive to involve other bodies, including health and social care bodies, local authority support services and voluntary organisations in meeting children and young people’s SEN and supporting their families. Our SENCO has an overall responsibility for liaising with all necessary parties so that lines of communication are maintained between all services. We encourage parents/carers to regularly communicate with school if there are any changes that may affect their child’s progress or wellbeing. Our family support worker will be based at school to support families and children. If you have any concerns we urge that parents/carers communicate firstly with their class teacher. All information will be then passed on to the relevant individual. If you feel that your concern needs to be communicated directly with a member or Senior management, family liaison worker or the SENCO then please feel free to contact directly through the school office.
The School Nurse (NHS) will liaise with school for children within the early years setting once they turn 5 years old. The health visitor will also liaise with Nursery for children of preschool age within Nursery.
You may be contacted directly by any of these services; please do not hesitate to inform us of any changes as due to new data protection laws information is not necessarily passed on to school unless parents have explicitly given permission.
