Reading and Understanding your
Child's Statement

Getting your child’s first statement

When your child first gets a statement of special educational needs from the Local Authority (LA) it can be a very stressful time. Your child may have struggled at school for a while.

Parent Partnership is here to support you. We are here to help you understand the paperwork and processes and to support you to have your views heard and we can do this together.

This leaflet tells you what a statement is and what happens when you get your child’s statement. We show you how the statement is split into parts and how these parts should be read together. This information should help you to understand your child’s statement.
