At Chatsworth High School and Community College we aim to support parents-carers and families in whatever way we can. Our School Business Support Team, led by our School Business Support Manager, provide ‘front-line’ support for families co-ordinating the exchange and flow of information around a range of key areas including completing important forms and documents, dinner monies, transport arrangements and arranging appointments with members of staff. The School Business Support Team also help organise multi-agency meetings, co-ordinating the attendance of a broad range of professionals and family members,often offering the school as the venue for meetings.
The school’s Learning Mentor takes a leading role in liaising closely with families and ensuring that whatever support can be offered by the school is in place. The Learning Mentor focuses particularly on pupils’ emotional well-being and attendance.
Members of the Senior Leadership Team alongside the school’s trained PROACT-SCIPr-UK ® Instructors provide bespoke support for parents-carers and families around behavioural issues. This work is often supported by the learning disability nurses.
