Mrs Lapworth is trained in ‘The Solihull Approach’ and runs a 10 week series of sessions for parents called ‘Understanding Your Child’ with another trained Teaching Assistant. These sessions will be offered throughout the year.

With a confidential ear she aims to support the family wherever possible.
