We greatly value the relationships that we have with the families of our young people and recognise the hard work by families to ensure every young person achieves their best.

The family team’s role is to support families to continue doing this valuable and hard work.

We strive to create strong positive relationships between home and school. There are different ways to communicate with school these include regular calls from a keyworker, emails, home/school communication books, phone calls and meetings. 

We know that working in isolation has less impact but in partnership we can make a difference to the lives of our students. 

Together we are stronger

"Working together to prepare our students, building their resilience and confidence to become fulfilled and independent members of their community"
