#childsafety | Supporting Children website offers help and advice for parents and families of children at school

The current pandemic has created serious challenges for young people in education – as well as for their families.

Thankfully, there are services available to help children and young people get the most out of their education, learn effectively and stay in school during this challenging time.

If you or someone you know is concerned about a child or young person’s return to school, whether they are of pre-primary, primary or secondary school age, the new Supporting Children website lists all the resources and organisations that can help.

You might be worried about how your child might cope at primary or secondary school for the first time, about securing a school place or even that they’re falling behind in their studies.

Whatever your concern is, the Supporting Children website offers plenty of information on services that can help, as well as how you can support your children directly during this tricky time.

This includes services like those provided by Tusla Education Support Service (TESS), such as:

  • Educational Welfare Service
  • Home School Community Liaison Scheme
  • School Completion Programme

The website also offers plenty of information on other aspects of the wellbeing and safety of children and young people – including parenting and family supports.
