Parent and Carer Information, Advice & Support

Both Devon and Plymouth Information, Support and Advice teams provide information, advice and support relating to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) for parents, carers, children and young people within the Devon or Plymouth Local Authority area.

Devon (DIAS) and Plymouth (PIAS) provide parents, carers of children and young people with SEND and also the children and young people independently with:

  • Support at meetings.
  • Support around education and training issues.
  • Understand more about SEND support.
  • Develop good relationships with professionals.
  • Express yours and your child’s views.
  • Understand the paperwork and legal aspects of the SEND Code of Practice.

Due to the unique nature of Sherford Vale School's geography, the school crosses into the local authorities of both Plymouth and Devon. The service that parents/carers can access depends on the home address and the local authority that council tax is paid to.
