What do we offer?

Our small dedicated team offers legally based and easily accessible impartial and confidential information, advice and support about special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) as it relates to education, health and social care. We also offer support when a child or young person is excluded from school.

We support children and young people with SEND aged 0-25 and their parents or carers.

We can provide professionals with general advice about SEND as it relates to education, health and social care.

We can help you to:

  • Understand more about SEND law

  • Express yours and your child’s views

  • Prepare well for meetings

  • Understand paperwork and processes

  • Develop working relationships with professionals

 

Who do we support?

We support children and young people with SEND aged 0-25 and their parents or carers from a time when you first have concerns about your child’s or your own special educational needs.

We have produced factsheets and toolkits for parents and young people which provide initial information on a range of issues, visit our webpages at www.spsbathnes.org.uk.

Please either email or call the SEND Partnership Service to discuss your situation with one of our team.
