Parents and Carers at Charlton Park Academy
At Charlton Park Academy our support group aims to encourage and support a positive home and school relationship. Therefore, parents/carers’ feedback on what they require from this group is important to us. We hold regular talks, advice workshops, art and craft courses plus informal sessions. This has been beneficial and successful in building friendships and encouraging communication between home and school.
We are currently working towards achieving a Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) for parental engagement. The LPPA allows us to have a framework which enables us to deliver effective parental engagement in our school. This award will showcase the work we do as well as help us to work more closely and more effectively with our parents/carers.
Message from City Lit:
This is an unprecedented time for all of us and we are trying our best to give you the latest information as we have it and to support you. We are making decisions with the overriding consideration of the wellbeing of our students and staff.
Following discussion with other London adult colleges, the Governing Body and the Unions, City Lit has decided to suspend face to face teaching as of 10pm tonight (Tuesday 17 March) for the remainder of this Spring term and potentially beyond. This means we will be closing our classes in our partnership venues from tonight.
We will be contacting our learners, tutors and venues individually to let them know about our contingency plans. Where possible, we will look to switch to providing learning remotely through email and online.

What to do if the LA takes away your EHC plan
When a local authority (“LA”) decides to take away, or end, an education, health and care (“EHC”) plan, this is called ‘ceasing to maintain’ the EHC plan. This means that the EHC plan will come to an end and the LA will no longer have the legal duty to ensure that the educational provision specified in the EHC plan is received by the child or young person.
Home to school travel assistance
The Royal Borough of Greenwich provides home to school travel assistance to school-aged children and young people who live in the borough. Post 16 students from low income families can also apply for financial support for travel to and from their place of education.
