Specialist Education Services (SES) Suffolk County Council
Comprising the Cognition & Learning, Communication & Interaction, Sensory & Physical, Social, Emotional and Mental Health and Whole School Inclusion Services, the Specialist Education Services are part of Suffolk County Council.
They work together to support schools and children with SEND across the whole of Suffolk in a variety of different ways, including support for children with visual and hearing impairments, dyslexia, behaviour needs, communication difficulties and others.

The SENCO Bulletin provides a round up of latest news, events and updates and is provided to any school leaders, SENCOs and teachers in Suffolk. Anyone is welcome to receive the bulletin; to be added to the list please email email@example.com.
SENCo Support Line
In addition, we offer a SENCo Support line which is open Mon-Fri 3.30-4.30pm during term time. The helpline number is: 01473 296631.
The line is answered by Health colleagues on Mondays, the Psychology and Therapeutic Service on Tuesdays, the Specialist Education Services on Wednesdays and Thursdays and Family Services on Fridays. However, you can of course call on any day and if your question or query cannot be dealt with straightaway then you will be signposted to the right colleague for support.
Please note that the support line is designed for general enquiries or ‘quick questions’ and not for individual pupil discussion. For example, you may have a question around systems, processes, school-based interventions, the Graduated Response, etc.
Inclusion Support Meetings
Schools can also book free 20 minute online Inclusion Support Meetings to access advice and guidance from a specialist teacher to support early intervention around a pupil’s cognition and learning difficulties, including specific learning difficulties. To book an ISM click here.
