How you can access additional support

A member of staff may contact you if we believe your child may benefit from additional support.

If you, as a parent or carer, have a concern you would like to discuss there are a number of ways to initiate the conversation:

  • Talk to a familiar face on the playground in the mornings or afternoons

  • Arrange a meeting with the class teacher

  • Telephone the school and arrange to come in for a more personal meeting with a school leader such as the Headteacher or Deputy Head Teacher, Inclusion Leader or Pastoral Leader.


Please speak to a member of our team if your child is feeling anxious, worried, suffering from a bereavement, or home issues.
