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
  • parenting, managing 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

Our Home-School Support Worker, Mrs Meeks, is able to work with families, parents, carers and the school to help pupils overcome barriers to learning and have the fullest access to educational opportunities. 

This could include working with the wider family and community, support agencies and organisations and giving advice or assistance where needed.  Please click the link below or call the school office to contact her.

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)
