The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Service & Who’s who

In 'The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Service & Who’s who' section: The SEN Service is situated in Childrens Services, Education Department, Council Offices in Redcar. The main work of the Service is to co-ordinate statutory assessment procedures, to arrange for appropriate special educational provision to be put in place for children with Statements of Special Educational Needs and to keep them under review. Staff also liaise with schools, parents / carers and other agencies in the issuing of documentation.

Service staff can give you advice about SEN arrangements and Statutory Assessment procedures. If your child is undergoing Statutory Assessment they will be able to keep you informed about the progress of the assessment.

If your child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs the SEN Link Officers are your main point of contact if you have any questions about the arrangements and provision for your child. SEN Link Officers support an identified cluster of schools in the timely and effective assessments, offering advice to schools on their legislative responsibilities as laid out in the Code of Practice. They will also liaise with parents/carers on aspects of their childs education. Link Officers will also represent the Local Authority at statutory annual, interim, transition and multi-agency reviews as required.

The SEN Service are committed to the key outcomes for Every Child Matters, which include:
  • Being Healthy
  • Staying Safe
  • Enjoy and Achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
