In this section, you can find services providing support in education for children with SEND.
The Health Visiting and School Nursing Team form part of the Sheffield’s 0-19 Service. They work closely with community paediatricians, GPs, health visitors and other specialist professionals. Members of the School Nursing Team visit all schools in Sheffield. The team carries out routine health screening for all pupils. They also carry out scheduled immunisation programmes.
Other Services support pupils with special education needs and disabilities.
The Mainstream Schools Therapy Services supports pupils with physical disabilities.
There is also advice available about SEN support in schools. For pupils without a diagnosis, there are also assessment services.
If your child is in hospital, the School Teaching Team, which is part of the Becton Hospital and Outreach Education Team, can help them keep up with their schooling until they are fit enough to return to school.
There are listings for services that support pupils who are home educated.
There is also some information on the Sheffield City Council website: Home Education.
