Support for Parents

Parental Engagement

We pride ourselves on involving our parents and families as part of our community at Glory Farm Primary School. There are opportunities throughout the school year for parents and families to get involved with their child’s learning through our ‘Look at Learning’ events. This could involve coming in during the school day to share your child’s learning with them, watch a performance or take part in activity with your child. At the present time, all events will take place virtually until we are able to have visitors on site safely again. This is through sharing photos and videos via the school website.

Mrs Emma Whitney is our Parental Engagement Lead across the school and monitors the opportunities being offered by year groups. Please do keep an eye on your child’s year group page on the website to keep up to date with all the wonderful things that are going on at our school!


Parent Support

At Glory Farm Primary School, we offer a variety of things to support you in supporting your child to ensure the very best outcomes for them.

Mrs Helen Black is the Family Liaison for Glory Farm who offers support to all parent/carers. Mrs Black runs virtual informal parent tea/coffee afternoons weekly where parents can share ideas/parenting tips. Mrs Black is Family Links trained as a Parent Group Leader and as a school we are excited to offer the 10 week Nurturing Programme. Please see the school life app and website for more details. We also offer structured parent workshops on a range of topics including:

  • Behaviour Management
  • Positive Praise
  • Choices and Consequences
  • Routines and Boundaries

Mrs Black also works directly with our children where there is an identified need for support through ELSA and Play Therapy sessions.

We also support parents who are identified as requiring support through the Early Help Assessment and Mrs Black will support families throughout this process. We can provide 1:1 parenting support to parents and families who may find it useful to have specific targeted support.

If you require specific parenting advice/support, please do get in touch with us via email –
