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.

Let's Learn Together 

The Child and Family Development Service are partnering with Adult Education to run a course called 'Let's Learn Together'. This 5 week course is aimed at the parents and carers who are looking after children with autism. It will look at what autism is and the effect it has on children and their development. It will help parents and carers understand the behaviour and needs of children with autism and develop strategies for best supporting them. This will include looking at behaviour, communication, relationships, development and needs.

At the end of the course participants should be able to;

  • Explain how autism impacts interactions and functioning

  • Describe strategies for effective communication

  • Make positive changes to relationships within the family

  • Create an appropriate sensory environment for an autistic child

  • Understand a child’s needs and develop strategies to support them (e.g. in regard to sleep, toilet training

  • Explain the causes of stress and how to help a child process and manage stress in healthy ways

The course will take place at Cherry Lane Children's Centre from 5th Nov-10th Dec from 1-3pm. A creche is provided for children aged 6 months-5 years, and those with babies under 6 months can bring them into the sessions with them. In order to access this course, parents must have a child aged 0-5 years (even if the child with autism is older).

Please see the attached poster for more details, and please share with parents/carers that may find this information beneficial.

To register for a place or for more information, please call 01895 250 393.

Autism Alert Card and Passport Scheme 

Dear Hillingdon Parents & Carers

An Autism alert card and passport scheme, has been introduced across London, as a result of a collaboration between the Metropolitan Police Service, City of London Police and British Transport Police. It has been developed following extensive consultations with individuals with autism and their parents, the National Autistic Society, Autism Partnership Boards, and supported by the National Police Autism Association.

The cards will alert officers to the fact that the individual may have difficulty with communication and exhibit unusual or unpredictable behaviour. In turn, officers will be able to make appropriate and reasonable adjustments and interact with the individual appropriately. The larger passports will include the same information and can be carried in bags or rucksacks for the individual to produce when required.

For further reading, please use this link: Launch of Autism Alert Cards

To receive your own card & passport, please send your full postal address in an email to: Autism@met.police.uk

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)
https://www.cnwl.nhs.uk/hillingdon-talks/

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.

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.
