Meeting Learners' Needs

At Milltimber School, we put learners at the HEART of everything we do. Supporting our learners to meet their full potential is key to our role as educators. We understand that at different points within their school and home life, learners might need access to a range of supports. We also understand that parents and carers may need help with a range of issues they are experiencing at home linked to their child. 

A great website which can help provide practical advice to parents and carers is Smart Parenting by Place 2 Be. Place 2 Be are a mental health with over 25 years experience. They work in many school across Scotland to support children and families with their wellbeing. The website has many short articles on a range of topics from bedtime routines to developing healthy gaming habits. All articles have been written by Educational Psychologists who are part of the Place 2 Be team.

At Milltimber School we can also refer to many agencies to support learners and their families. This is often done through our Single Request for Assistance form or Cults Partnership referral form after having a discussion with everyone involved. We can refer to seek support from the following:
