We take a partnership approach to working with parents of pupils with additional learning needs (ALN).
Parent Partnership Services provide support and advice to parents whose children have ALN. They provide accurate and impartial information on a range of options available to parents and carers. They do not ‘take sides’. They help parents to make informed decisions about their child’s education. Where parents want an independent parental supporter, the service will provide one.

Our services for Inclusion (Education) and Disability (Social Care) work together to provide better services for children and their families. We hold regular meetings with parents so we can work in partnership.
Where children and young people have a significant learning difficulty and complex needs they and their family may be supported by a key worker in the Children's Disability Team. They will make sure everyone knows what help is needed, what is being done and how often this needs to be reviewed.
