What our parents and pupils say ...

" Banksy is for when you are sad, you talk and they make it better " ~ Year 3 Pupil 

" The Inco Team at Green Lanes have provided much needed support for both of my children and our family as a whole. They always listen and help in anyway they can but are never judgemental. The whole team are fantastic! The understand my children and I am constantly learning from them in ways to help adapt and cope with everyday life. The journey of seeking a diagnosis for your child is not an easy one but I feel so much more confident with the team " ~ Parent
