Parent Carer Forum

The Family Forum is held alternately in Holly Grove Primary School and Ridgewood Community College (GLD Secondary Provision), once a month from approximately 1.15pm to 2.45pm. We offer a warm welcome to all parents/carers who care for a child or young person with additional needs in the local area. It is an opportunity to raise any issues or concerns, chat to other parents and meet the guest speaker. Our parent/carers choose who they would like as guest speaker and a wide range of speakers that have spoken include: Riding for the Disabled, Action for ASD, Cerebra discussing issues around sleep and many more. If you would like to hear from a particular organisation or group please let us know and we will invite them to a future forum.

The dates and times can be found below and if you require further information please contact the Family Support Manager, Nick Barrett at Holly Grove School.

Until further notice the parent/carer forum will be held via zoom.
