Local Offer / SEND
What do I do if I think my child may have Special Educational Needs?
If you have concerns regarding your child’s progress or wellbeing, this should first be discussed with your child’s class teacher. You may also wish to contact our SENDCO. Arrangements will be made for a meeting where school will listen carefully to concerns and put appropriate actions in place. This may involve observation and assessment in school, additional support within the classroom or referral to external agencies such as Educational Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, Special Educational Needs Inclusion Team or the Area Inclusion Partnership. If there are other agencies already involved with your child when they start school, please let us know so that we can work with them to provide the best support for your child.
A virtual information and consultation month for young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Leeds
1st to 31st March 2021
Hosted on the Leeds Local Offer website
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are hosting a virtual SENate during the month of March 2021 as part of the Leeds Local Offer Information and Consultation month for families. This is an opportunity for young people in Leeds to find out information on the different services available to them as well as take part in consultations.
The information and consultation is now live!
· Information market place: there are a number of short videos from different services across Leeds explaining what their service offers and how to access them.
· Children & Young People Consultations: there are two consultation activities available for young people to take part in. They are designed to be completed in a group setting, however they can also be completed by individuals. Please support young people to take part in these consultations.
Please support the young people you work with to take part.

We work hard to quickly identify any barriers to learning and put support in place to help every child to succeed.
