Events and Support for Parents
We believe it is really important that parents feel supported and have regular opportunities to talk to the SEN team about their child and SEN provision at Fleetdown. We pride ourselves on having an ‘open door’ policy where parents can drop by to see us in person, call or email to discuss anything.
