“The majority of children and young people with special educational needs will have their needs met through SEN Support. Where a child does not make expected progress despite SEN Support, an education, health and care (EHC) needs assessment may be appropriate. The Local Offer website has more information about how to a request EHC assessment, and frequently asked questions about the referral and assessment process.

The Suffolk County Council special needs team is split into three areas

  1. The Ipswich Team covers south Suffolk and pupils and young people attending education outside of Suffolk. They can be contacted on 01473 265101 or by email – SENTeamSouth@suffolk.gcsx.gov.uk

Sendiass (Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information, Advice & Support Service) offers support and guidance to parents.
