Support For Parents & Carers
At Foxfield, we believe in having a whole-school approach to be able to support parents and carers effectively. We engage widely with members of the local school community and are committed in sharing these links with you.
We understand the importance of building links between home and school, empowering parents to voice their ideas and opinions, and communicating effectively with you to promote your child’s learning and educational experience.
Parent/carer engagement is important because working together has been shown to have a promising impact on the wellbeing, attendance, behaviour, sense of school belonging, intellectual development and attainment of children across a range of social and economic backgrounds.
We aim to strengthen parent/carers’ abilities to build resilience in your children and in yourselves – reducing risks affecting wellbeing and learning. We run programmes for parents/carers which aim to strengthen children mental health or de-escalate common problems.
As well as thinking about the children in your care, it is important to take care of your own mental health and wellbeing. This will help you support yourself and those you care about. Children react, in part, to what they see from the adults around them. When parents and carers deal with a situation calmly and confidently, they can provide the best support for children and young people.
We will update this page with our Community Newsletters, parental engagement sessions, workshop presentations, additional support information with outside agencies and community support links.
