COVID-19 Information

During this difficult time we wanted to reach out to let you know that we’re still here to support your child and your family in whatever way we can.

We have put together some resources to help you support your child. We hope you find this information helpful. Please see documents below.


Other support is available to families suffering hardship   

This time of year can put extra pressure on household budgets, with increased heating bills. As part of the government’s Winter Support Grant, Surrey County Council has made extra funding available to Surrey Crisis Fund. This money is there to act as a winter lifeline for those feeling that there is nowhere to turn when unexpected bills appear or essential household items break down. Families can access  the Surrey Crisis Fund online, or families can ask at their local library or Citizens Advice Bureau.
