Hill Croft School acknowledges the unique challenges our families face in raising and supporting a child with severe learning difficulties therefore, in 2015 Mandy Toal was appointed Family Worker.

The role of the Family Worker is to provide support, training advice, signpost to agencies, and provide guidance to the parents/carers of children and young people who attend Hill Croft School.

Individual meetings can be arranged or you can attend the Parent Group. The Parent Group helps to encourage parents to share experiences, obtain useful tips and techniques from like-minded parents/carers and to seek mutual friendship and support.

Courses, information evenings and the occasional pamper evenings are arranged to provide knowledge and understanding in areas needed to assist your everyday living with a child with Special Needs.

The Parent Group is held fortnightly on a Friday 10.30—12.00pm in the Parent Room and all parents are welcome. Tea/Coffee and buns provided.

To arrange a meeting for advice, support or information, Mandy can be contacted on 07708410461. Meetings can be held in your home, in school or a place of your choosing.
