Thurrock Council provides a range of services for students and school aged children to ensure they have the opportunity to release their potential and achieve excellence.
Support can be in the form of financial assistance by the award of grants or loans. We can also provide advice and support on health matters such as teenage pregnancy and medication whilst at school. Where parents/guardians choose to education their child at home, Thurrock's Pupil Improvement Officer (PIO) will provide assistance.
Special Educational Needs are supported by our dedicated Service Administration Team. This team works closely with a wide range of agencies including parents, schools, Pupil Support Service, Educational Psychology Service, the Education Welfare Service, Health professionals, pre-school settings, Social Services and the Parent/School Partnership Service.
Social Care Children's Services work together with families who need help and support to promote the welfare and safety of their children. They work closely with other services such as health, education, housing, police, probation, as well as voluntary organisations.
