CONTACTING RTLBs during LEVEL 4 LOCKDOWN

Please email your caseworker RTLB for support during lockdown, or for general advice please contact the

Liaison RTLB for your school or one of the Leadership Team

The national RTLB service works together with teachers and

schools to support the achievement of students in Years 1-10

who have learning and/or behaviour difficulties.
