Support for families

This is a difficult and confusing time for many families. Here are some links to support from external providers;

Uniform

The first Monday of the month we hold a uniform swap. During this time families are welcome to come and view the uniform we have available and take what they need for a small donation. If you have any uniform that your child has grown out of, please can we ask that you sent it into school.

This may help

This May Help has been created to support parents and carers with concerns about their child’s mental health.

The subjects covered on this website have been chosen by families and young people who have gone through their own mental health challenges. What helped them may also help you.
