Face to Face Fridays

What are Face to Face Fridays?

The idea of Face to Face Fridays was to give parents and young people the opportunity to talk to us face to face, however with the current situation we are offering this via MS Teams or Zoom.

At the end of April 2021, we launched Face to Face Fridays.  These are an opportunity for parents and young people to talk to a SEND Advice Surrey (SENDIAS) Advisor for half an hour on a Friday in term time.

Slots bookable via emailing sendadvice@surreycc.gov.uk and are every 30 minutes from 10am to 11.30am.

Reasons for booking a session

  • If you are worried about your child struggling at nursery or at school
  • What to know more about the EHCP process
  • Want to talk about mediation
  • Want to talk about how to appeal a decision by the LA

Basically, it could be anything about special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and education.

Talks for Professionals

We also attend events at this time so if you offering presentations or coffee mornings to parents we could come along and tell them about how we could advise and support them and can also answer any questions. So far we have attended Action for Carers, YMCA and NAS events.

Talks at Schools

If you are a School and have children with SEND you could also book a Face to Face Friday for Advisors to come along and talk.
