Welcome to the Engaging Parents and Carers Site.

This site is a dynamic site designed to provide useful and clear support to parents and professional development for those working with children, particularly vulnerable ones. All the information offered freely or at a cost is designed with the single aim of ensuring that the child is at the centre or our work and consideration and that we all work together to improve the outcomes for the children with whom we interact.

Parents and Carers: Please select the Parents button and explore the activities and information provided. We hope that it provides you with a better understanding of the environment that will be created by the Children and Families Act and the SEND Code of Practice. We also hope it provides you with some of the questions you might want to ask of those professionals with whom you will be working to help your child.

Professionals: Please do explore the Parents site so you are better prepared for the questions they might ask. Please also consider undertaking the training activities which can be found by clicking on the Training Course button at the top of this page. The Training Course takes you through a range of topics from the way your environment might be seen by parents and children, through activities to help you communicate more effectively to detailed information about the Children and Families Act and the SEND Code of Practice. You can register instantly for this course by following the pay directions or you can arrange for payment through your school or organisation to obtain your own login and password.

Feel free to revisit these sites as they will be regularly updated as information and clarity is received.

We hope that this will help you strive for a better outcome for yourselves and for the children you seek to support.
