PositiveParenting word cloud

As a SENCO at Alderbrook I regularly meet with parents to discuss the issues their child is experiencing in school and do all I can to ensure the implementation of those reasonable adjustments, which are required by a mainstream setting.

However, I understand that the challenges your child faces are not confined to school hours.

This page is aimed to provide you with resources and advice to support your child at home. There is a lot of information widely available for parents but I would advise you to look at these resources first, as they have been recommended by external specialists and professionals in education.
