Child and Family Support


t's normal for every family to need a little extra help from time to time. Our staff team will be able to offer support or will help you to find the help you need in partnership with other professionals working in our community. 

We  are able to offer support for families experiencing a wide range of challenges such as:

  • Establishing morning and bedtime routines
  • School attendance
  • Managing your child’s emotional wellbeing
  • Emotion based school avoidance
  • Bereavement and understanding loss
  • Managing the behaviour needs of children with SEND at home

If you need to access support, please contact the school office and we will arrange for the most appropriate person to make contact with you.
