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 have recently received fantastic news that Charlton Park Academy has been awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award.
The LPPA allows us to have a framework which enables us to deliver effective parental engagement in our school. This award showcases the work we do as well as help us to work more closely and more effectively with our parents/carers.

Money Matters: An overview of key benefits you might be entitled to like Disability Living Allowance and Carers Allowance, grants that are available and dispelling some of the myths around benefits.
Managing your child’s sleep: To help you gain a better understanding of the sleep processes, why sleep problems may occur and possible causes and solutions.

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.
