Support for Learning

 

Every quarter we receive a news letter from an organisation called Chip+. The Chip+ newsletter is full of valuable information about support groups, benefits, financial support and services for young people with additional support needs and their families.  The newsletter will be uploaded to this page and we'll alert you via the twitterfeed when it comes in. We'll keep each newsletter on the page for a year so that you can refer back to it if necessary.

We are often asked by parents how they can help support their child's learning from home. Here are some links to information from the authority specifically to help parents do just that.
