The PSA and PSFA are the schools' two parent bodies but the school also offers parents other opportunities to help one another or to get advice.
The Infant and Junior School offer parents support through the SideBeSide initiative, led by Monica Jato.
SideBeSide is a school based therapeutic service that benefits the whole school community by being available to all children and, where helpful, to parents/carers and staff. The team runs sessions such as the very popular Parent Gym.
Malorees (Health) Matters
There is also an informal network called Malorees Matters which meets monthly over coffee.
This is an opportunity for parents and carers to discuss any challenges or issues relating to the family or personal well-being or of their children. For more information please contact Paul Thomas via firstname.lastname@example.org.
