School visits this term
GPV visit schools across the borough every term to host coffee mornings specifically for parents of children with special needs. You don’t need to have a statement or plan for your child to join us. We usually bring a guest speaker on a topic that’s relevant for example ASD Outreach, the SaLT service or a charity such as Young Epilepsy. Our meetings are relaxed, informal, chatty and we always make sure there are hot drinks and cakes supplied!
