Parent Support

The school employs a Parent Support Advisor to help you. If you are struggling with elements of home life, things like routine, homework, bed times, behaviour, food & nutrition, or need support financially for things like accessing benefits or getting uniform, them why not give us a call and ask to speak to Mrs Lacey, our Parent Support Advisor. She will call you back at talk to you about how she can help.

Sex and Relationships

School has a curriculum to support 'Relationships and Sex Education', written by the Local Authority. This starts in year 1 and goes through to year 6. However, families should always be the foundation of all relationships and sex education. Families should not just think 'school do that'. Education about healthy relationships starts in the home.  It is really important you are comfortable at home to be able to talk about everything and anything (at an age appropriate level) with your child, not only to help promote a healthy relationship within the family, but to make sure your child knows who they can ask (i.e. an adult at home) if they don't want to ask something in school.

The NSPCC have a great website for you as parents and carers- to help you with 4 particular areas. These are:

  • Healthy relationships
  • Gender and identity
  • Sexuality and sexual orientation
  • Sexual behaviour in children
