Coronavirus: Latest news on changes to early years, education and colleges and resources to support families


The government announced on Wednesday 18th March that education settings (early years, schools and colleges) would close from Friday 20th March except for certain groups of children and young people.  These include vulnerable children and young people and those with an EHC Plan.  Stockport Council have been working rapidly with local education settings to ensure these groups are safe and provided for.  You can read about what's happening at:  This page also links to information, advice and resources to support you and your family at this time.


We expect the information to develop and grow as the new arrangements settle in.  So keep checking this page regularly to find out the latest information and resources for your family.  You can also email: with questions not answered on these pages.  Please be aware that many Council staff are working from home or with their own caring responsibilities, so your email may not be answered immediately.


PIPS is Stockport’s official local parent carer forum run by parents for parents, carers, grandparents and family members who have a child/young person between the ages of 0 & 25 years with special educational needs &  disabilities including any additional need. PIPS was founded in 2008 through Department for Education funding “Aiming high Short Breaks Agenda”.


We work in co-production with the Stockport’s Education, Health & Social Care, Providers and local support groups to ensure the collective voice of parents and carers are heard during the design, development, delivery and review of services to ensure best outcomes for children and young people and their families.


PIPS offers an opportunity for families to come together,  receive the latest training, share information, experiences and to provide support to each other.

"Our mission is to bring about positive change for families of children and young people with any additional needs or disabilities. We achieve this by empowering parent carers in effective participation to shape services and provide information and support."
