Working With Schools

SENDIAS Support to Schools and other Education Settings

We offer support to education settings to influence, or further improve, their whole school engagement with parents. We do this by encouraging them to sign up to our Education Partnership Protocol (which has been co-produced with parents) and by offering Structured Conversation training.

Demonstrating Good Practice Certificate

Schools will be awarded the certificate once they have demonstrated commitment to working with parent carers of children & young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

We require the school to complete a survey to detail how they meet specific criteria, along with 2 testimonials from parent carers of children at their school.
