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.

The next parents/carers events coming up:

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.

Housing Options

A while ago Charlton Park Academy ran a group to discuss housing options in RBG to look at housing options for people with disabilities – how families are affected.

Golden Lane housing are now looking at organising a Focus Group – which Sara, our Family Support Worker/Counsellor, will be helping to facilitate at Charlton Park Academy. Carers are needed to join the focus group and share their views
