Who can I contact, if I think my child may have special educational needs?
Your first point of call is the Special Needs Co-ordinator or Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) in your child's school or nursery.
Please Note: If you wish to discuss your child's needs further you can contact the Cumberland, Special Educational Needs and Disability Teams at SENDSubmission@cumberland.gov.uk or on: 01946 506 211 (Allerdale and Copeland); 01228 226 842 (Carlisle)
You can also download our new Cumberland SEND Structure Chart [PDF 204KB] to contact a member of the SEND Team.
Access to the SEND Social Work Service is initially through contacting the central hub on: 0333 240 1727
Our Cumbria SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SEND IAS) can also give you advice about SEN.
