Keeping Teesside Connected is a free, confidential service, available to adults, children, and families affected by disability, autism, and mental health – to support them with the ongoing changes due to Covid19. This will be available in Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton on Tees. 

They can offer telephone, texting, and email support from 9am-5pm (Monday to Friday) and can arrange to have regular check-ins. They also offer support in-person to those in need. 

Helpful Information

During the national lockdown, we are unable to have parent visitors to the academy site.  The new guidance from the Department for Education states that:

Settings should restrict all visits to the setting to those that are absolutely necessary. This means suspending parent and carer visits for:

  • new admissions,
  • settling-in children new to the setting
  • attending organised performances

However, please contact us on 01642 248333 if you are interested in applying for a place and the academy and explore the rest of our website to see what Discovery offers.
