South Glos Support Group is Tuesday 18 November at 7.30-9pm, Room 1, Supportive Education Unit, Brimsham Green School, Broad Lane, Yate BS37 7LP

We can't quite believe how quickly time is passing. It is anti-bullying week from 17-21 November and its focus this year is the experiences of children with SEN. It's a regular issue on our IAS line, but with the pace of education reform, and the continued evolution of service delivery / availability in the authority, we've never managed to put on a daytime meeting just on bullying.

So, Support Group this month will be a workshop session with Kathryn and Sara, a chance to share experiences and talk through processes.

We'd like to share the resources we've been sent links to, and will have copies of the 2014 edition of Digital Parenting for you to take away.

We look forward to seeing you there.
