Next meeting ... Watch this space!
(We'll set the next date once we return to school in September.)
These informal monthly drop-in sessions are especially for parents who have children with Special Educational Needs, children with medical conditions which require extra support in school, or children who need any other type of extra help to access the school curriculum. We’d love to open the group to as many parents as possible, so if you have friends who you think would benefit from attending, do bring them along. There will be the usual tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits and a chance to chat.
