Parent/Carer Support Group

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 event coming up:

Greenwich Parent Voice

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 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.

The details:
Members of GPV get a 10% discount on Better Health and Fitness and Better Health and Fitness UK memberships.

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
