Education Advice

Our educational advice services support children and young people to access and enjoy education.   This is a wide range of expertise, covering the following areas:

  • Admissions
  • Attendance
  • Home Education, Traveller Education, EOTAS, and the Sutton Local Offer
  • Speech, Language and Communication Needs Service (SLCNS)
  • English as an Additional Language
  • Autism and Behaviour Support
  • Sensory Impairment Support
  • Sutton Information, Advice and Support Service (SIASS)
  • Learning Support Services

We can advise on the legal aspects of school attendance, home schooling, and the rights and duties of families and schools in relation to children’s access to education.  We provide hands on intervention and teaching to children with particular needs and provide CPD and advice to schools and families on how best to support children and young people in their learning.

We have received planning advice, transition planning as well as inclusion strategies and training. The service has been vital.

Link meetings have given the staff new strategies and reminded them of known ones to support the children’s learning

Skills have been transferred into lessons…children are developing skills to help independent learning in the classroom

The support my son has been given throughout his schooling has been fantastic, developing his confidence and skills.  Great back-up and link between myself and the school, ensuring he has all the support he needs.
