Family Support

Our School Family Team are here to provide support for a wide range of issues. Our aim is to empower our local community and provide support to families in many ways.

Food and clothing bank

We have accessed funding enabling us to provide families in need of warm clothing, shoes and school uniforms free of charge. We were also able to secure funding to set up and run our own in school food bank.

We work closely with local organisations to secure gifts that families can access to support with presents for birthdays and Christmas, as well as securing Christmas food parcels for families in need.

Counselling Service

We are proud to work in partnership with Kalmer Counselling to provide an in-school counselling service for our children. We have a trained counsellor, Heather, working to provide play therapy for children in school. This is closely supervised and managed by the leadership team. In Spring 2023 we also added a therapy dog called Fergus to our team! He’s quickly become a favourite around school!

Parent/Carer Sessions

Our family team offer regular online parent/carer sessions around a range of topics. These sessions reflect the content being taught to children during our school PSHE curriculum. Topics so far have included;

  • Anti-bullying
  • E-safety
  • Mental health

Please keep an eye out for future sessions which will be sent out to you via text or email.

Parent Learning Zone

We are in discussions with local colleges to provide learning opportunities for parents and carers within our trust. We plan to look to deliver maths and English courses within school in the near future, as well as courses focussed on parenting, managing challenging behaviours, and managing mental health. We regularly share information on our school Facebook page. This includes advertising external sessions, courses and support on a wide range of subjects relevant to parents and carers from local and national organisations.
