SEND Surgeries

The Southend Council Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Team are holding monthly SEND Surgeries in community locations across the city. The surgeries provide parent carers with a friendly and informal opportunity to drop-in, ask questions and receive support on anything relating to SEND. Booking is not required and parents who have attended surgeries so far have found them very helpful.

Surgeries take place on the 3rd Tuesday of every month between 9:00am. and 11:00am. There is no need to book, just come along. Future surgery dates and venues are listed below.

Victoria Coatsworth (Specialist School Nurse for SEN), from the Public Health School Nursing Team will be in attendance at the 16 May surgery. Victoria’s role covers the health needs for SEND pupils in mainstream schools in Southend.
