Support for Parents

Family Support at Cupernham Infants

We are here to offer support and guidance and a non-judgmental listening ear to all parents/carers of the children at our school.

This support can mean different things to different people and the school recognises that an individual’s needs change all the time, due to many reasons. It may be that you require some support with areas such as: school attendance/lateness, school transition, behaviour, wellbeing and mental health, confidence and self-esteem building.


To arrange a meeting or a phone call please contact the school on or 01794 514494 and Mrs Hoath our Child and Family Support Worker will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible. If your request is urgent then please contact Mr Wells,  Headteacher or Mrs Turski, Deputy Headteacher as soon as possible.
