Clarendon School has dedicated Family Workers who work across the primary and secondary sites. The Family Workers organise and hold regular coffee mornings which provide a fantastic opportunity for parents and carers to meet up in a relaxed setting and have a chat.
From experience we have learnt that parent peer support is one of the most valuable resources and can address such a wide range of issues relating to raising a child with special educational needs and/or disabilities. The Family Workers can provide information about what’s going on locally, including clubs, activities, and support groups. Though an embedded part of life at Clarendon School, the Family Workers are here for you and your needs and can be an impartial shoulder to cry on or simply a friendly ear. The Family Workers can also provide 1:1 support for filling in paperwork for relevant benefit entitlements such as Disability Living Allowance or for funding for outside of school activities or equipment.
At Clarendon School, we are proud of our inclusivity and diversity and extend this to our work with families. We recognise that every child and every family are unique in their own way and we work closely with them to celebrate and build on this. Our aim is to build good relationships between home and school to provide the best possible care and support for your child.
