Parent Information

The SpLD Team is an outreach service supporting schools.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US DIRECTLY.

If you are concerned about your child’s literacy and/or numeracy progress, please contact your child’s teacher in the first instance.  If further information is required, we advise you to arrange an appointment with the school’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo).

If you feel you would like someone to support you when meeting with the school, then contact the area ‘Parent Partnership’ representative whose name and contact details are below.
