SEND Coffee Mornings

Each half term the SENDCo organises a coffee morning.  This is an informal drop in session, sometimes with a visiting speaker.  We welcome all parents (not just those with an SEN Support Plan) and tailor the sessions to any feedback given by parents.   There is always coffee and cake!

The world of SEN can be littered with a lot of terms and abbreviations.  At South Wellfield First School we try really hard not to overuse them, however sometimes they are unavoidable.  We will do our best to explain them to you.  Here is a helpful Jargon Buster for you to refer to if needed. 

Early Help Assessment 

For some families, there are a lot of additional people involved.

In those instances using Early Help enables us to pull a team around the family and discuss strengths and difficulties together which is much more effective. For more information or to chat about whether opening an Early Help would benefit you and your family, please speak to the SENCO.
