Welcome to The Weald Locality SEND Alliance.
The Weald Locality is a group of 10 primary schools linked to The Weald Secondary School in Billingshurst. Links to the schools in our locality can be found here.
Staff in our schools have worked together for many years to support each other and the children and families in our community. Historically we have depended on the Local Authority to provide a range of information, training and intervention to enable us to meet the needs of children who have additional needs and their families.
However, in recent times, it has been more difficult to access this support and the opportunity arose for us to set up our own ‘Hub’ where we could work with partners in our community to create new ways of supporting families of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities from birth to age 25.
The SEND Alliance will promote its services primarily through our website, www.wealdsendalliance.org.uk; initially we intend to offer the following:
- Training and information sessions for parents, carers and professionals; resources that may be loaned to our member settings and the families they work with. Details of our training programme can be found here
- Membership which will offer free and discounted training; access to our loan resources and a conduit for seeking ideas and suggestions from other colleagues within the network.
We are always interested in discussing way of working together with statutory and voluntary organisations, so please get in touch if you have any suggestions or ideas we could consider.
