What's on for Parents and Families at Stepney Park

Family-School Collaboration | Student encouragement, School community, Kids  school

At Stepney Park we work with our parents because we know that this is the best way to achieve excellent outcomes for our children.

Parental engagement is supported by our fabulous Pastoral Care Team (PCT).

The PCT supports families and children.  They help find solutions to financial issues and support parenting, attendance, health and well-being. The PCT runs a variety of workshops and programmes for parents on supporting children's learning and parenting.  They also support with admissions. The PCT are available for Bengali translation.   They are welcome to suggestions and ideas for what you want us to provide.

Our dedicated Pastoral Care team have a wealth of experience and training and liaise with parents and offer support. The support may include:

●  Referral to parenting classes

●  Signposting to housing/benefit support

●  Signposting to a range of borough service   

Wider Support for Families

Family Support Worker - Shabana

 - Support with parenting needs and sign-post to community services.

Attendance Welfare Officer

 - Our AWO meets with the Wellbeing Lead regularly to investigate incidence of attendance and to support families who struggle to get their children to school for any reason. 


- We have a school based counsellor who supports pupils with specific issues, especially in regards to supporting mental health. There is an element of parental support with this and there may be individual or family sessions provided.

School Support

We have monthly Vulnerable Children meetings to discuss children and families.  Information from Vulnerable Children meetings is used by the PCT so that necessary areas for support can be identified.

This support might include:

- inviting individuals to workshops

- offering counselling services

- referrals to the school nurse

- inviting specialists in a specific social area to support the family or families via coffee mornings or through the Family Support Worker

We welcome families to approach the school to ask for support and we will deal with all families professionally, discreetly and warmly.

Below are the opportunities we offer at school:

Walk 'n' Talk: Every Tuesdayat 9.15

The aim of this is to develop relationships in the community, support people learning English, explore the local area and keep fit.

By popular demand, the Pastoral Care Team have organised a Walk and Talk Group for parents.  This will run every Tuesday at 9.15 (meet up outside Smithy Street gate).  The group will be led by Shipa.
