Support Services

For many families, the most challenging time in their lives is when they have dependents under the age of 18.  These difficulties can include:

  • low income and benefits in affording basic essentials such as housing, clothing, or food
  • making choices about/ supporting your child's educational development
  • accessing health or disability services
  • accessing mental health services
  • transport, access and attendance issues
  • English as an additional language/ translation requirements
  • behaviour and emotional support
  • legal advice and assistance around employment or your statutory rights

This page contains support for when the challenges you face are affecting your child's development and education as well as more general advice for the common difficulties families face, such as setting and managing budgets on low income for example.

Home-School Support Worker

From September 2021 we will be employing a Home-School Support Worker to work with families, parents, carers and the school to enable children and young people to have full access to educational opportunities and overcome barriers to learning. This could include working with the wider family and community, as well as support agencies and giving advice and assistance where needed.  Click the link or call the school office to contact them.

Charging and Remissions Policy

The school's charging and remissions policy can be found on the policy page (linked below) and sets out when the school has the discretion to offer remissions to pupils and their families and how it should decide (a remission is the relaxing, subsidy, cancellation or reduction of a charge for school services which are otherwise expected to be paid for)
