Event for Parent Carers on the Isles of Scilly

Inviting Parent Carers on the Isles of Scilly to come along to a free training day.

The SENCO for the Five Islands School

The SENCO is always happy to support in any way possible, for example as a listening ear; sharing information about your child; by E mail 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.


The SENCO is Val Parker. Her office is beside reception.

Telephone: (01720) 424867



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.

Parent Forum

Parent Forum is a group for all parents of children with Special Educational Needs and Disability. It is co-ordinated. The group meet monthly in the Well Being Centre. The activities vary from social events with the opportunity to share experiences and to support each other, to meetings discussing local and National SEN issues. The Forum represents the parent voice on the Islands. At times visitors may be invited to attend part of the meeting. For example, once a term SENCO will attend. This gives parents the opportunity to share concerns on a general level about the provision in school and to feedback any positives. It also enables the SENCO to share any new initiatives or changes that may be happening.

The meetings are advertised by flyer on the school website and posters
