Wellbeing and Family Support
Although we are able to offer a wide range of support in school for pupils and families, there are a number of external organisations that are able to support families further or in different ways.
Buckinghamshire Council Family Support Team
The Family Support Service's parenting programmes will help you develop new and existing parenting skills, offer advice and build your confidence as parents of children from toddlers to teens.
Resources for parents
All parents want the best for their children, but there are times when you may need extra help and guidance. Family Links resources for parents provide:
- step-by-step guidance
- tips and resources
- practice sheets
- YouTube videos
The Buckinghamshire Family Support Service offers support to children, young people and families with children and young people aged 0 to 19 (or up to 25 years with a special educational need or disability (SEND))
- advice through the Family Information Service
- health service sessions at our Family Centres
- information and advice drop-ins for parents and young people
- support with issues affecting families
You can request support for a child, young person or family online if you are:
- a family member, requesting support for you or your family
- a young person, requesting support for yourself
- a professional*, requesting support on behalf of a family or child.

As a school we are able to provide a number of different support options to families that have or will be experiencing a bereavement. Please feel free to come an talk to us at any time. We also have a Rainbow's Group which runs every couple of weeks in school for pupils to be able to spend time with other children who have had the same experience.
