Support for Families

This lockdown period brought upon us by COVID-19 has had a huge impact on everyone and below are some of the support systems Charlton Park Academy and CENMAC have offered our families.

Charlton Park Academy





CENMAC is a team of advisory teachers who support pupils who have difficulties accessing the curriculum because of a physical disability. We assess and review the progress of pupils, train the staff working with them and loan appropriate equipment. We work across the Greater London area, with pupils and students aged 2 to 25 with Education Health and Care Plans.



Parent/Carer Feedback


The prospect of Lockdown was an anxious time for most parents but possibly more for those dealing with youngsters with special needs and Challenging behaviour.

I  found/find CPA very supportive. We receive weekly phone calls from both the Nursing Team and other members of staff. There were lots of ideas to use or adapt on the school’s website. If we had any questions there was always someone to help at the other end of the phone or email.

Once I needed to return to work as a key worker the school were able to act quickly and offer my son a suitable place in order that I could return to work with as little stress as possible. The support from Sara Johnson has been of much value to our family and others particularly via the WhatsApp group.

It has been really nice hearing from individuals from school while we have been at home. Sara and Claire keep in touch with us to see how we are doing and how we are coping. School have also supported with shopping which was really helpful.
