Support for Parents

Wandsworth FIS – The Wandsworth Family Information Service has advice and information about the wide variety of support available to families in Wandsworth.  Their website is: www.wandsworth.gov.uk/fis

Wandsworth SNAS – The Special Needs Assessment Section is responsible for statutory assessments, placements and reviews of students with Statements (which are now being replaced by Education Health and Care Plans or EHCP). Your child will have an allocated case manager who should be your first point of contact if you require support relating to your child’s EHCP, for example if you think your child qualifies for transport to and from school, or if you want to discuss your child’s school placement.

The Special Needs Assessment Section can be contacted at:

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
