Welcome to the family support page.
In this section, you will find support for a range of issues including wellbeing, behavior, SEND, family counselling, bereavement and other circumstances that may affect you, your child or your family. It is a developing part of our website that we will update regularly and welcome any recommendations from parents about services that they have found useful.
Take A Moment
CORONAVIRUS 2020 -as we receive family wellbeing materials during this difficult time, we will upload them for families to access in this section.
Also please refer to our ‘Home Learning -SEND Support- Useful Resources’ for simple activities you could do with your family.
If you find anything that may be useful for other families, please email Deputy.firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share it, if it is appropriate.

Twinkl have uploaded some very good ‘Social Stories’ that you could use to help with anxieties around the Covid 19 virus and school closure that your children might have. I have uploaded them below.They are in WORD format so you can edit them.
The Red Cross have put together some packages to help families through the School Closure. Please take time to look at the ideas- they may be just what you need!
This online book will is a great way to explain ‘worries’ to younger children.
Also, can we remind you of a fantastic charity Leicester Children’s Holidays which provides free holidays for children in difficult circumstances. E.g. Low income households, family issues, bereavement, children who are carers and looked after children.
Please contact Ms Lee if you are interested in this service.
When recommending websites we have taken great care to use resources that we have used in school, know through other educational sources, or have been forwarded by professional bodies, such as the DFE.
However, given the exceptional circumstances it has not been possible for us to review every website. Therefore we would advise that all parents and carers take the usual measures before sharing with children:
- Check that the content is suitable for age and ability
- Be aware of any cookies that may be part of the website
- Be aware of any GDPR issues that may arise, and what your personal information may be used for.
