Update April 2020

The current situation with regards to SENDIASS /KIAS service in light of the Governments advice around Covid-19:

The service is committed in providing you with high quality information, advice and support with special educational needs or disability enquiries on either 01422 266141 or 0300 330 1504.

The service is currently operating slightly differently in that all our SENDIASS / KIAS Officers are delivering their duties now working from home. We are still contactable on 01422 266141 or 0300 330 1504, please leave a brief message and contact number, someone will come back to you as soon as possible, we aim to get back to you within 2 working days. Alternatively if you are trying to contact a particular Officer and have their mobile numbers please continue to use this number.

In line with Government guidance we will attempt to support you in a way that doesn’t involve face to face meetings, we are confident that we can continue to offer deliver services that are beneficial to you through alternative means using phone or video conferencing.

Please discuss your needs with your worker and they will advise on each individual situation.

About

Calderdale SEND Information, Advice and Support Service

The SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) Information, Advice and Support Service (formerly Parent Partnership Service) provides legally based, impartial, confidential and accessible information, advice and support for parents of children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities about education, health and social care.

The IAS (Information, Advice and Support) Service will be able to offer face to face, telephone and electronic information advice as well as casework and representation when needed. They will work impartially and confidentially with parents and children / young people together but will also ensure that they are able to provide a service directly and separately to children and to young people should they request it.
