Parent Support for Students with Special Educational Needs and Disability

Claire is always happy to support in any way possible. For example, providing a listening ear; sharing information about your child; sorting out any issues that arise or discussing next steps. Please contact Claire through her email if you are concerns so that we can respond quickly.


It is also good to share the good news too, so if your child has had a positive experience in school, Claire would love to celebrate that success.

The document below shows how we assess and identify students with Special Educational Needs. 

Interventions at Five Islands Academy

At Five Islands Academy, we provide care and support for a variety of additional needs. The booklet above shows what interventions we are able to provide.


The form below has been created to give teachers the structure to complete the assess, plan, do, review cycle in their lessons when identifying needs and inputting support within their lesson structure.

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.

The Isles of Scilly Parent Carer Group

The Isles of Scilly Parent Carers are an independent organisation made up of parent carers of children and young people who have additional needs/disabilities that mean they access extra services in education, health or social care. 
Members are welcome from across our islands.
The Isles of Scilly Parent Carer Group aim to meet regularly to use the unique shared experiences that they have gained in raising their own families to work in partnership with all agencies responsible for providing services to children with additional needs/disabilities in the Isles of Scilly, enjoy family fun days, have social evenings out and offer a peer support network.
