Support Agencies

Our Inclusion Manager is able to support families and make referrals, where required, to outside agencies that we work closely with. As well as professionals such as Educational Psychologists and Speech and Language Therapists, there are many other agencies we work closely with, such as Chance UK, CAMHS and Families First. They offer advice and support to children and families on all issues which can affect their well-being. For more information, please use the links below or speak to our Inclusion Manager.
