Parent Carer SEND workshops

Parent SEND workshops

We're pleased to announce we've re-started our SEND Support workshops for parents and carers. 

These workshops are part of our commitment to working in partnership with parents and carers, to support the best possible outcomes for our pupils. We hope they help to provide a greater understanding of a diagnosis or difficulties a child may experience, in a caring environment, with practical advice. 

Please see the leaflet below for more details on the upcoming topics.

Who is delivering the workshops?

These workshops are organised by our SENDCo, Sarah Wilkinson and delivered by our Clinical Psychologist, Dr Ze’ev Levita. Ze’ev is experienced in working with children and young adults with special educational needs and developing strategies to support young people. He offers ‘Problem Solving’ sessions to our pupils.

 

 

What can I expect? 

The workshops will at the school in our main meeting room in small groups of up to about 15. We want them to be welcoming and confidential where parents and carers feel comfortable sharing information and asking questions.  

The workshops will be a combination of advice and information from Ze’ev and group discussion. There will be the opportunity to ask questions, however if you wish to have a private meeting at a later date with Ze’ev this can be arranged.
