Advice for parents of children with SEN | Oxfordshire County Council

Advice for parents of children with SEN

Parent guides, drop-in sessions and links for families of children with special educational needs.

Helpline for parents

Do you have concerns about your child's education or would like some help in approaching school or nursery? Would you like support at a meeting or to talk through what you want to say?

We are here to help you, whether you are wondering if your child has special educational needs, or already gets extra help at school, has a statement, Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or is in special school. Contact us during office hours, Monday - Friday or leave a message on our answerphone.

Talking Points drop-in advice sessions

If you would like to find out more about the SEN system, or are looking for a chance to talk things through, join us at one of our free Wednesday morning Talking Points drop-in sessions. These advice sessions run from 10am-11.30am.

They will be held on the first Wednesday of each month in County Hall, New Road, Oxford
