Enquire allowed me to understand what my child was entitled to educationally and how the school should be supporting my son – helped relieve my anxieties.
Annual Seminar Report 2011 – Working smarter together for additional support
Enquire’s national seminar ‘Working smarter together for additional support’, took place on 16 March in Cumbernauld. The event was a great success, attracting a range of professionals and parents from across Scotland. Delegates enjoyed the focus on sharing practice, discussion and debate. A key message from those attending was that, at a time when budgets are stretched, good communication and investing time in building relationships between professionals and with families is crucial.
This year’s event included four workshops that involved children and young people or showcased their views through film. Delegates enjoyed hearing directly from children and young people on the type of support that helps them in school.
