Parent Support for Students with Special Educational Needs and Disability

The SENCo is always happy to support in any way possible, for example as a listening ear; sharing information about your child; by email contact; sorting out any issues that arise or discussing next steps. Please contact the SENCo quickly if you are concerned in any way so that we can respond quickly. It is also good to share the good news too.

SENCo Contact Details

Our SENCo is Claire Drew, who is based at Carn Gwaval, originally from Mounts Bay Academy in Penzance.

Claire can be reached by email:

SENDIASS (SEND Information Advice and Support Service)

Adele Nankervis is the SENDIASS Supervisor. She visits the Islands regularly and will support parents in a number of ways. Usually she holds coffee mornings to meet any parents who wish to see her. This provides an opportunity to discuss any concerns parents may have, or to answer any questions about the SEN process. These are advertised on the school website and by posters at school. She also will attend meetings if a parent requests this.
