Partnership with Parents
Abbie Eland, Head of The BaSS (Behaviour and Student Support) and a member of the school Safeguarding Team, leads this initiative. The main purpose is to create an extra level of pastoral support for children and families by offering effective strategies, support groups, training sessions/presentations and an opportunity to talk to other parents who have had/are currently experiencing similar challenges. We also hope to empower parents, encourage open and honest communications and strengthen the home school link.
We will keep events posted on this page (links to events will be emailed directly to parents) and where possible, we will upload recordings of the presentations which can be accessed below. Due to the current climate, our events will be held online until further notice.
To help make this initiative successful, parental involvement and feedback on events will be very much appreciated.

Young people need a clear message to 'WHY' drugs can be so harmful. There are far better ways to resolve problems or enjoy oneself without the effects...
