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:
Monday 3 June
10am – 12.15pm
City Lit: Creative Course
Thursday 6 June
1 – 2.30pm

Friday 7, 14, 21 June and 5 July (Review), 10am – 12noon
These sessions will be delivered by Kate Thornton – Family Therapist, Greenwich CAMHS Challenging Behaviour and Mental Health for Parents of Children Diagnosed with ASD and Learning Disabilities. The aims of these sessions are:
- To help parents recognise the impact of mental health on the behaviour.
- To help parents identify and understand the function of challenging behaviour.
- To help parents identify the factors that reinforce behaviours.
- To help parents reflect on their state of mind and be mindful.
- To help parents implement appropriate strategies to manage their child’s behaviour and review.

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.

We are an independent group of parents in Greenwich. All of us have a child with special educational needs or a disability. We are committed to giving a voice to all carers of disabled children in government.
- Are you currently a member of Better, with gym or leisure centre membership in Greenwich?
If you pay a monthly membership fee you could get 10% off just by being a GPV member. All you need to do is email Viv and Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org and once we have ten names we can activate a corporate discount for all our members on their Better monthly fees. This offer was previously only open to new members, so this is a big opportunity to save money every month.
Members of GPV get a 10% discount on Better Health and Fitness and Better Health and Fitness UK memberships.
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
