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.

 

LPPA logo

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.

THE PROJECT

The Open Sound Ensemble Course will be taking place on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February 2020 at Plumcroft Primary SchoolVincent Road Campus which is about a 5-minute walk away from Woolwich Arsenal station (map). Young people have the option of joining either the morning or afternoon group on each day.

Working as an ensemble alongside specialist workshop leaders and musicians from the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), we will rehearse and perform our own music. We will use a mixture of both traditional and accessible digital instruments to explore sounds, rhythms and melodies, and devise new music together.  We will be interacting with each other as an ensemble, sometimes following cues from the LPO team and each other, and sometimes making our own creative decisions.

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

Please contact learning-disability-group@royalgreenwich.gov.uk
