  • Attendance
  • Domestic violence
  • Attendance
  • Mental health

And more.....


Please get in touch if there is anything I can support with or signpost to support services outside of school where necessary. 



We are lucky enough to run parenting programmes onsite such as: the 'Solihull approach parenting programme', healthy eating on a budget, online safety, girls and Autism, PCSO lead community risk advice, to name just a few that we have planned. 

Please see the 'Baby and Toddler Group' and 'Swap Shop and Foodbank' tabs for more information about our school community support available.
