Covid-19 - Important Notice: Skylarks has suspended all face-to-face sessions in order to protect our children and families during the Coronavirus outbreak. However we are still here for our families. We are running many of our activities live online using Zoom. We are producing new exciting video content to share with families for use at home. We will be running some activities over the summer holidays and signposting others in our e-newsletters. We are also available to respond to queries by telephone, FaceTime or email. To register with us (either as a family or as a professional) and receive our weekly emailed newsletters, please click on the purple button which says Register in the top right hand corner of this website.

  • What to do about phase transfers from one school to another;
  • Annual reviews - what to think about , help with paperwork and support in meetings;
  • What to look for in draft EHCPs
  • Information about your rights
  • School transport
  • Exclusions
  • Home schooling
  • Appeals
  • Unable to attend school (school anxiety, school refusal, not fine in school)
  • What support should be available in educational settings

How the service works:

You can use this booking form to request an initial phone or video call. Once you have booked please email with your preferred time for the appointment and whether you would like a phone or video call.

If you would prefer a face to face meeting then these are available on Tuesdays (2.30-5.30) or Fridays (10-12) at The Crossway Centre and can be booked here


This service is free of charge. However, this is a costly service to run and we suggest voluntary donation of £20 for a telephone consultation and £50 - £150 for case work.
