Family Support and Early Help
At Parkend School we understand that children learn better when families, schools and children work together. We encourage families to come in for an informal conversation when support is required. I work with multiple outside agencies to establish the very best support for you and your children. If you have concerns or are experiencing any personal difficulties, sharing these concerns can often help. I can offer impartial support and signpost parents/carers to the most relevant agency.
Advice and support are confidential, although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance to the school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
