SEND Resources

If your child has Special Educational Needs (SEND) or an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) then some of the strategies and activities listed below may be supportive at home. Within each folder is a range of resources to support students with learning. There are also ideas and hyperlinks to relevant websites.

You can also get in contact with the school office on mailto:office665SSPS@educ.somerset.gov.uk Please mark the email for the attention of Louise Conway-Byron (SENCO) for signposting to further support services during this time.

Attached is a link to the SEND local newsletter for parents and professionals, which is updated weekly and offers further support and guidance for parents in Somerset https://choices.somerset.gov.uk/025/send-news/
