“Our vision for children with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all children and young people – that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college, and lead happy and fulfilled lives.”
(SEN Code of Practice, 2014)

Whether you are a SENCO is a large secondary school or college, spinning many plates, or a parent of a child with SEND, understanding the systems and processes can be a daunting task.

SENDISS has a core goal of supporting SENCOs and parents of children with SEND. The aim is to ease the burden upon those closest to our vulnerable children and young people to enable them to achieve to their true potential and empower then to live fulfilling lives.

This section provides a range of resources for parents of children with SEND, SENCOs, teachers, and anyone interested in SEND. They are all developed to aid your understanding of the needs of pupils with SEND and to aid your management of SEND provision and ultimately providing excellent care and support for children and young people with SEND.
