Kingswood Parent Support Group Tuesday 14th July from 7:30pm

Eryl Daniels, Vulnerable Groups Team Leader, is coming to talk to us on the topic "What does good Practice look like in school?" with discussion to follow.

It is a chance for us, the parents whose children may have benefited from her support over the years, to say "thank you" and good bye. There will be cake.

I do hope you can make it.

We would also like to share any tips and hints you may have for managing the summer holidays whether you have toddlers or teens.

Join us from 7:30pm.

With best wishes

Kathryn and Sara

Who needs an EHC plan? Our new factsheet is online now

Who needs an EHC plan? Read our new resource for information tailored to you for Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire.

EHC, or Education, Health and Care Plans are for children and young people who have a special educational need or disability that cannot be met by the support that is available at their school or college.  Our online factsheet helps you decide if it would work for you and gives you links to information about what is available in your local authority area.
