Help & Support

What Help and Support is available for the Family?

 Please take a look at the frequently asked questions below about additional help and support available at The Clifton Centre for families.

If parents would like any help or support then they can contact school directly on 0161 921 1300 to arrange an appointment to discuss with us their requirements.

Do you offer help with completing forms and paperwork?

Parents are offered as much support as they need to complete forms and other documentation. Where there are known literacy difficulties staff are on hand to ensure that all information is passed on in an appropriate manner.

What information, advice and guidance can parents access through the school? Who normally provides this help and how would parents access this?

Parents can speak to form tutors / family liaison officer / vocational support workers if they require further support from external agencies and can offer guidance with regards to filling in forms or referrals where necessary.

How does the school help parents with travel plans to get their child to and from school?

The Clifton Centre offers transport from some areas within the authority depending on bus route and distance. This will be discussed during induction. If this is not applicable, travel plans will be discussed with students / parents if they need support with this. All students make their own way home. Discounted bus passes can be purchased from the school office.

If the pupil has an EHC plan, it maybe that transport is provided if deemed appropriate.
