SEND & School Nursing Information

1st January 2021

Please see attached information on a SEND event coming up later this month.  This event will provide information to families who are new to SEND and help them understand the processes at different stages. The event for Early years will be held on 19th Jan and for Primary and secondary school age on 20th Jan. 


January can be a difficulty month without the current concerns around lockdown and Covid 19. You may feel isolated from family and friends, be worried about your health, your children’s health or just life in general.


Your local health visitors and school nurses are here to offer you any support you may need around feeling low, anxious or depressed. We are still visiting you and your family at home during this time. You can contact us on:


Health Visitors: 0191 2831508

School Nurses: 0191 2832189

Remember you are not alone!
