Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:

  • behaviour or ability to socialise, for example they struggle to make friends
  • reading and writing, for example because they have dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, for example because they have ADHD
  • physical ability

Who to talk to

If you think your child may have special educational needs, contact the our SEND co-ordinator (SENDco) - Miss Oriole Harris - SEND@walliscote.extendlearning.org

Contact your local council if your child is not in a school or nursery.

 Your local Information, Advice and Support (IAS) Service can give you advice about SEND.
