Coffee Mornings October 2021

Pennfields School in conjunction with Tettenhall Wood School are re-opening their face to face coffee mornings.

Their next event is on Monday 4th and 18th October 10.00- 11.30am at Tettenhall Wood School. Please email Eve at egriffiths@pennfields.com to confirm your interest in attending.

  • Education, Health and Care Plans – assessment process and outcomes
  • EHCP Annual Review – what to expect from an annual review
  • Positive Communication – for professionals working with parents and carers of children with SEND
  • Aspirations and Outcomes 
  • Coffee and Chat

Summer taster sessions coming soon

We have been rethinking how we deliver our SEND legal training sessions during this current time.   We have been busy developing virtual taster sessions for parents, carers, young people and professionals to join us. These will be smaller than our face to face sessions but we aim to cover everything you need to know. 

Please bear with us for a few more days and look out for announcements very soon.
