SEND

Collis Primary School is committed to improving outcomes and having high expectations for all children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.  We understand that all children are entitled to an education here at Collis that enables them to:

 

  • Achieve their best
  • Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives; and
  • Make a successful transition into adulthood.

 

We understand that for parents of children with SEND, there can be many difficult paths to navigate.  Sometimes it can be hard to know or find the answers but we strive to ensure that there is always somebody here to talk through your worries, concerns or queries with.

Richmond Parent Carer Forum

 

Richmond Parent Carer Forum (PCF) is an independent group run by parents for parents or carers of children/young people (aged 0 – 25 years) who have any form of special educational need or
disability. Your child does not need an official diagnosis for you to become a member and we
support families of children with any type of additional need including learning difficulties like
dyslexia.


We receive funding from the Department for Education and our purpose is to ensure that the voices
of parents, children and young people are heard in the planning and implementation of SEND
services in Richmond. We can also help you to access services and provide valuable peer support,
connecting you with other parents who understand the special joys and challenges of raising a family
with additional needs.
