Belmore Primary Academy

Parent Workshops & Support

At Belmore Primary Academy we know that our parents/carers sometimes need advice on how they can support their child with Special Educational Needs, or any other concerns that they may have regarding their child’s development. 

As a school we will always try our best to provide support and advice to our parents/carers, but we appreciate that there are more experienced and qualified professionals that you can access.

This is where we hope this page will help.

Keep checking this page for regularly updated information regarding agencies, websites and events that are occurring within school and the community, which we think you could find helpful to support them to meet the needs of their children.

Hillingdon Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) 

We have been asked to spread awareness about the following website,

Hillingdon Talks: Hillingdon Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy (SALT)

You can access information about the three specialist SALT teams (Early Years, Mainstream, Hearing Impairment), including making a referral. Three teams but one service!

Please take a look at what the teams can offer, and to access information and support. We hope all our parents/carers make full use of this service.

If your child is transitioning this summer 

Please can you take a moment to read the flyer regarding our latest research recruitment and pass it to any contacts you may feel would be interested in taking part.

If your child is transitioning this summer, and has Downs Syndrome, Williams Syndrome or is on the Autism Spectrum,  we would really like you to get in touch. 

Please click here to view a flyer outlining an important research project that we are conducting into the transition process and evidence of good practice. It would involve you filling out an on-line questionnaire before and after their transition.  We reward your efforts with a £10 amazon voucher.

We would really like to hear from you.  Families that have already taken part in our 2018 summer transition work found it very supportive and a great way to monitor the process.

Hillingdon Borough SEND Local Offer 

The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. Knowing what is available and how it is accessed gives more choice and control over what support is right for your child. Parents need to know how to access provision: whether through a statement (or an Education, Health and Care Plan) or not.

The offer includes provision from birth to 25, across education, health and social care and has been developed in conjunction with children and young people, parents and carers, and local services, including schools, colleges, health and social care agencies.
