Parent Support Group

Our WKS Parent Support Group takes place 2-3 times a year, usually in the form of a coffee morning. During lock-down we continued this virtually and we're pleased to say we're able to run them at the school again.

All parents and carers are invited to the coffee mornings in school. Whether your child is new to the school or has been attending for some time, we welcome you to join us.

What's the aim of Parent Support Group?

The aim of the Parent Support Group is to create a sense of community and support parents and carers of pupils at the school.

  • Give all parents and carers the opportunity to meet with each other and feel supported between each other. Parents have told us that it’s difficult to get to know each other when you don’t meet up after school to collect children. 
  • The group can be an opportunity to network and share information about your local community e.g. clubs, activities or any deals that are on offer.
  • The Parent Support Group is organised by school staff which also gives us the opportunity to share information that is available in school. We try to discuss topics that are important to you. In the past we have discussed parent views around transition; future aspirations; life skills, careers or college; and EHCPs. Sometimes we have guest speakers or organise social events which are just a good chance to relax, chat and have fun!

Although WKS can be a long way for people to come, we do have parents and carers who travel from Cheshire, Shropshire, Wales, Liverpool and Wirral. It’s ok if you can only pop in to join us for some of the time or if you need to arrive late/leave early.

Here is a comment from a parent who's come along.

“In my experience, having a child with different needs can make you feel isolated and a bit detached, especially if your child does not attend your local school. WKS run a Support Group in the school once a term which is very relaxed and informal.  It’s an opportunity to listen to invited speakers, chat with other parents, share experiences and relax in the knowledge that we all share similar challenges. So if you are a parent, grandparent or carer, why not come along and see for yourself.”
