Coffee morning

Our SEND Team are proud to announce a range of new events for parents of children with SEND.

This September we will be hosting regular coffee morning drop in sessions.

Join us for a friendly chat over a coffee and a biscuit.

Meet other parents of children and young people with SEND, discuss issues, and share insight and ideas.

Parents matter, but so do other adults who look after children too.

From foster carers to grandparents we have used the term ‘parents’ as shorthand for all these different carers.

We want to hear about your experiences and how we can help.

We will have guest speakers on subjects that matter to you and your family. 

There are two weekly for you to choose from.

The sessions start on the week beginning Monday,13 September, 2021.


Central Family Hub,
Edward Street,



Nunsthorpe Family Hub,
Sutcliffe Avenue,


The sessions are being hosted by our newly appointed SEND Parent Engagement Champion, Abi Fleming.

Abi said: “I’m thrilled to be able to work with local families of children with SEND.

“I have a background in health as a paediatric nurse.

“Also, as a mother of two, one of whom has SEND, I feel that I’m in a good position to understand the needs of parents.

“There’s so much potential to enhance what we offer. It’s a really exciting time to be involved.”

We are also offering curriculum support workshops and pop-up events.

Our workshops and events are open to all carers who support children and young people with SEND.

Your child might not be on the school SEND Register or have an EHCP but you may have concerns about their additional needs that you would like to speak to us about.

We can signpost you to the right services and help you find out more information.
