Family Support


Families can often go through difficult times which impact on a child’s emotional health. It is helpful if you inform the school if you are going through difficulties such as a relationship break-up, divorce, if there is illness in the family or something that is upsetting the normal routines.


When families are going through stress, it can often impact on children and their behaviour. If we know, we can support your child or just keep a watchful eye.

We often support families through difficult times and can help ease stress for your child. We also have access to outside agencies that may be able to provide support. All such matters will be held in strict confidence. You may wish to make an appointment with the Head Teacher or just write the details in a letter.

We also offer English classes for parents every Tuesday from 9:15am-10:45am in the Infant dining room. Lessons are delivered by Melanie Bruck who is a qualified teacher of English. The first trial lesson is free so come along and see what you think!

These classes aim to:

  • Improve your knowledge of the English language
  • Improve your fluency
  • Learn more about life, customs and culture in the UK
  • Be enjoyable and meet new friends
