Local Support for Families

Local Support Networks:

At St Mary’s we work alongside lots of agencies and groups who offer support to children and families. Some of this support takes place in school and some in the local community. If any of these agencies are of interest you can get in touch with them directly or come into school and we can help you to make a referral. The agencies logo should direct you to their own website:-
