SEN Extended Schools Service
Aspects School Partnership is available to provide a range of support to families. The support is very varied and offers help with any concerns families may be facing with their child or their own personal circumstances. We work closely with many of the local support services to help families in accessing support in times of particular difficulty.
Did you know that in primary aged children, parental involvement is more important to a child’s achievement and adjustment, than the quality of the school they attend?
