Inclusion Support & Outreach parent/carer remote consultation service

The Inclusion Support Service and Outreach Service are offering a remote consultation service to parents/carers to help them to support their child(ren) during the school closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Parents/carers who feel that they would benefit from consultation with a member of our team can access the service. The service is offered to all parents/carers of children living in Wolverhampton, attending

Wolverhampton schools or in the care of Wolverhampton local authority.

Areas that parents/carers may wish to discuss or explore with us could include:

  • Impacts of transition from school to home learning.

  • How do I support my child’s learning, social and emotional needs whilst they are at home?

  • How do I promote positive behaviour?

  • How do I support my child who is anxious or worried about the changes and implications of the coronavirus?

  • How can I support children who may be missing friends and school staff?

  • Impacts on family relationships.

  • Supporting children or young people with uncertainty regarding endings e.g. children not returning to nursery, pupils in Year 6, Year 11 or Year 13.

Parents/carers will be contacted remotely by their preferred method of communication and offered an initial consultation of up to 30 minutes with a member of our Inclusion Support Service or Outreach Service. They will also be offered another review consultation at a later date as a way of monitoring progress. Parents/carers will be asked for permission to share information relating to the consultation(s) with schools and settings.

The consultation service can be accessed by completing an online request form on the Educational Psychology Service website (http://www.educationalpsychologywolverhampton.co.uk/); telephoning the Inclusion Support Service Administrators (Tel: 01902 550609 or 555934 or 555120)
