Special Educational Needs

London Borough of Sutton has a range of services to support children with Special Educational Needs

If your child already attends a Sutton school (or pre-school group or nursery) then the staff there will be pleased to give you information and advice. The information on the web pages linked below will also help you to decide what action you need to take if you think your child might have Special Educational Needs and what support is available to help you.

If you would like to speak to someone about your child's Special Educational Needs, then contact the SEN Team on 020 8770 6507/6508.
