SENDA are a small not-for-profit organisation based in County Durham. SENDA was created after their founder faced multiple barriers when trying to help her child access appropriate education. There were many times she sat down and thought “I wish there was someone I could call; someone who would sit with me and tell me what I’m meant to do next…”
There was nothing and no-one locally who could provide this service. Initially the founder was frustrated by this, but soon realised she had the training skills, and connections to build such as service. So SENDA was born, with a team of individuals committed to the health and wellbeing of young people., and their right to access education.
At SENDA they share their name and values with the Special Education Needs and Disability Act 2001.
The Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against students with a disability and requires that reasonable adjustments be made to help them access a suitable and appropriate education. They aim to promote the rights of children and their families by supporting them through advocacy; advising them of their rights; signposting to appropriate services; and informing them of their next steps.
You can find SENDA on Facebook & Twitter or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org

Please see a save the date flyer for Rollercoasters 5th Birthday. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since we started this group-when we started I was a very scared parent needing support and hoping I wasn’t alone. 5 years later, my daughter is really well and Rollercoaster continues to support lots of parents.
We hope to make this a special night for all parents to celebrate all that you do to help your child. If anyone would be willing to speak about how Rollercoaster has helped them, please let me know. Kathryn Pugh who is the national lead for children’s mental health is coming along to support us which is great. More details to follow but for now put the date in your diary if you can make it.
We also have an E-Network and closed Facebook group if you can’t make it to the group please let us know if you would like to join the network or click on the link below to join the closed group

The school will help children to learn about staying safe online, but recognises that the primary responsibility for online safety at home lies with parents and carers. Your help is now needed to help your children adopt safe use of the digital technologies at home.
We have recently been made aware of concerns relating to “a challenge” which is a form of cyberbullying that spreads through social media and phones mostly using Whatsapp. Phone users are enticed to contact a user through WhatsApp where they receive graphic threats from the user and are instructed to perform a series of dangerous tasks. Despite claims that the phenomenon was reaching worldwide proportions in July 2018, the number of actual complaints is relatively small and no UK police force has confirmed anyone was actually harmed. The UK Safer internet centre has been aware of this as an issue for UK schools over a year.
You can find further information on how to keep your children safe online in our Online Safety section.
Walworth Primary School Year 5 & 6 children are participating in The Prince William Award this academic year. This programme is designed to help children develop the confidence, resilience and inner strength to ‘dare to be their best self’.
SkillForce is a national education charity, employing predominantly ex-servicemen and woman to deliver The Prince William Award in schools. HRH, Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge is the royal patron. A SkillForce instructor will be coming into school once per week to run a series of workshops, sessions and projects that will encourage your child to understand and reflect on the importance of key character traits like resilience, self-belief, team-work and confidence.
This is achieved through your child taking part in interactive games and activities, community projects and reflective learning, all of which follow a scheme of work that has been developed and evaluated by some of the country’s top universities and educationalists.
At the end of the programme, if your child has developed the qualities that underpin The Prince William Award, they will achieve the prestigious certificate and badge at a graduation ceremony. We expect that your child will improve their character and resilience to enhance attitudes to learning.
If you would like to find out more then please do visit the SkillForce website, www.skillforce.org, follow SkillForce on Twitter, @SkillForceScot, or watch some of the videos on YouTube that explain in more detail about The Prince William Award.
