For children we offer childcare before and after school, a range of sports, arts and specialist interest activities at lunchtime, after school and in the school holidays, residential trips and (with parental consent) access to specialists such as counsellors and Speech and Language therapists. For parents we offer Family Learning courses, in which parents and children learn together, English language classes, parent support groups and a parent counsellor.

We also offer English classes for parents who speak English as a second language, with both beginners and intermediate classes. If you would like to find out more about the current courses on offer for parents please contact Amy Oxley, Extended Services Cluster Manager via the school office.
Support for parents
We regularly hold parent groups to encourage parents to share experiences and provide an important source of support for the group, helping each other deal with the day to day challenges they face as parents. To find out when the next group is meeting please contact Amy Oxley or Fay Maul, Learning Mentor via the school office. We also have a parent counsellor Caroline Collins who is available for one to one meetings to support you through any issues you may have with your family at home or at school.
