Please see below a link you can click on which opens up a document which you may find helpful when completing DLA application forms. It gives guidance and examples for completing each section and questions on the application form.


Last year we were lucky enough to have an organisation called ‘Contact’ deliver workshops in school for some of our parents/ carers. The workshops provided information & advice on a range of topics such as: Encouraging Positive Behaviour, Wellbeing for Parent Carers, Sleep and Money Matters.

Due to current restrictions we will not be able to deliver these workshops in school at the current time, but if you think you’d like to know more or think the workshops would helpful then the organisation is running these online….their website has lots more information and free guides to download.  For more information click/ follow the link below:
