Peer Support – Can you help others?

A parent has suggested that we set up a peer support programme where families who are going through or have been through similar situations can connect to offer help to each other or signpost others to the support they accessed.  If you would be interested in supporting or helping others please email parentmail@pleasantstreet.liverpool.sch.uk outlining the support you think you could offer to someone else.  This information will treated with strict confidence and any interaction between parents will be set up with school support.

Thank you

Liverpool Qwell

Did you know that all teenagers and adults who live in Liverpool can get emotional support from a qualified practitioner through an online portal, as part of the NHS offer.

For over 26s go to: https://www.qwell.io/

Or for 13 to 25s go to: https://www.kooth.com/

PS – it is widely available around the UK now, if you know people who may benefit from other areas it would be worth trying to sign up in case they are also covered.

Parent Questionnaire – Family Support

As a school we are here to ensure your child experiences success and happiness, which means supporting them with matters both inside school and in wider family life. We are always trying to improve how we do this, particularly now that we have a Family Liaison Officer, Kirsty Sparrow.

We would be really grateful if you could take a moment to answer the questions in the questionnaire emailed out to parents last week.

Thank you

Update: 

Thank you to everyone who returned the questionnaire last week telling us how school has helped you and your child. We appreciate the time you have taken as it will help us continue to offer the best support to our children.
A few people have mentioned coffee mornings in their replies, I look forward to organising these as soon as we are able to while staying Covid19 safe, I am hoping to start them in September.
Best wishes, Kirsty Sparrow

Employment Support

Kirsty has supported parents through this scheme when she worked at a local children’s centre. She saw it help many people get back into work; it helped with CV and application form writing, sharing job opportunities and even gave out grants for interview clothes or travel to interviews.
Thank you
