The Department for Education have made changes to the way schools support children with Special Educational Needs and disabilities (SEND) from September 2014.
This will affect the provision for your child if they have SEND or additional needs. Please click HERE to see an official letter to parents about the changes from the Government. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss these changes further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Does your child have dyspraxia?
Dyspraxia affects fine and gross motor co-ordination and can cause problems for young people in planning, organising and carrying out movements in the right order in everyday situations.
There is a new book written by Emma Austin-Jones, The Lilac Story is a fairy tale featuring a group of characters who have varying degrees of dyspraxia. It is a story of inclusion, friendship and kindness and how it is OK to be grumpy sometimes. For more information visit www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/
