GPV events for the Autumn Term

Take a look at the wide range of information and social events this term for parents and carers. All are free and most are open to carers across the borough of Greenwich. Your child does not need an EHCP or even a diagnosis to join us, come even if you are just at the anxious and unsure stage and want to explore if your child has additional needs. Meeting and talking to other parents always helps.
