SEND Information and Support 

As we begin the Autumn  term, we continue to experience a situation we have not seen before. It is requiring us all to change our normal routines and may be causing your child with additional needs to feel concerned and present some challenges for you as a parent and/or carer.

On this page, we aim to bring together a wealth of resources and support to help and guide you as parents and carers during this unprecedented time. Whether it be support with home learning tasks, routines, anxiety we hope you will find the information useful!

Although we are not able to meet daily in school, we are still here to support you and should you need some advice and help please contact Mrs Tighe by email on n.tighe@st-annes.bham.sch.uk or by phone 07375 044787.
