Do you have a child or young person with SEND?


After the recent OFSTED inspection of Plymouth SEND services, Plymouth Parent Carer Voice (PPCV) and Plymouth City Council (PCC) are looking for feedback from families to see if there have been any changes since the last inspection.


Regardless of whether or not your child or young person has an EHCP, please consider taking part in the online survey - it will only take 5 minutes.


Copy and paste this address into your browser and select the survey that applies to you:


Our website may be of interest to parents and carers; we have a members area where parents and carers can sign up free of charge and access webinars, additional information, and also our Lending Library where members can hire various sensory items for a small weekly fee.

Parent Comments


Leigham Primary School has been an amazing experience for my son. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and assisted with all aspects of support, ensuring that his SEN needs were met. He was so happy there that he didn’t want to leave!

The SENCO (Mrs Perkin) is fantastic and very supportive, which gave my son the best chance to flourish within a mainstream environment. I can’t recommend Leigham highly enough - best school ever!


Mrs Alana Mitchell



This is an email to express how well Leigham Primary School SEN staff did. My son had SEN support all through his time at primary school which has helped support him in his learning and confidence in a school environment. I have been very pleased with the care SEN has given myself and my son and would advise anyone how well Leigham Primary School SEN staff treat their pupils.


Thank you
