Support for Parents/Carers

Families come in all shapes and sizes but one thing that is universal is that being a parent can be tough!

As a school, we are always here to support you.   Below, you will find lots of links to help you with common issues and the website at the bottom has even more.   

 

If you are struggling (whether it be financially or in another way), please feel free to speak in confidence to me to see how we may be able to help.

 

Remember there is also lots of useful information about keeping your child safe online on this page of our website:  https://www.ourladyofgracejuniors.co.uk/keeping-your-child-safe-online/

Art Therapy for Parents/Carers
