Parent/Carers Support

Welcome to our Parent / Carer support page.

On this page you will find a variety of things that I think may be of help to you. They will range from helping you to understand terminology used in school (Jargon), to directing you to organisations that may support you,  or simply general information that you might like to read.

I hope you find it useful.  If there is anything you would like to see on here, contact school, who will be more than happy to either find the information for  you, or to upload things that you feel other parent / carers would benefit from knowing.

We welcome any suggestions from parents and carers, whether via our Parent governors, FUN Committee Parent Associates, or directly from you via the phone, text, letter or in person. 

If you would like a paper copy of any information on our website please contact the school office on 0151 934 2991 and we can arrange this. 

Click in the links below for further information, plus have look on our SEN support page and our Mental Health Awareness folder ... Have fun reading.
