Children and Family Support

The Children and Family support page offers a wide range of specialist information and services to support schools and settings in meeting the educational and emotional needs of children and young people. 

Evidence Based Parenting Programme

The Early Help Service arranges monthly parenting programmes across the Borough. We provide trained and experienced course facilitators who work in conjunction with host schools to give parents all the tools and confidence they need to parent their children more effectively, to manage challenging behaviour and to support their children's education.

Universal Infant Free School Meals (UiFSM)

All children in Reception Year 1 or Year 2 in state-funded schools are entitled to free school meals, regardless of whether their families get qualifying benefits or not.
