Home Visits

Our Family Liaison Officer can offer home visits to discuss ways in which further support can be offered to you and your family. We use a coordinated approach though early help assessment. From this, supportive links can be created within our internal school community and with external agencies. Examples of support that you might want to discuss are: Attendance, Behaviour, Housing, Mental health, Financial and Safeguarding.

Young Carers

A young carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition, such as a disability, illness or mental health condition. This might involve extra jobs around the house such as cooking, cleaning, or physically helping someone. Some children give a lot of physical and emotional help. Our weekly young Carers club gives our young carers a place to be. We are currently working towards our young carers award in the academic year of 2020-2021.
