At Mersey Park we take the care of our children very seriously. In order to care for them we also try to support family members. In order to do this we have a designated Home/School Liasion Officer (Mrs C.Hardy)and an Assistant Safeguarding Officer (Miss D.Perkins) – to find out more click here.

The Family Support team here at school are now offering Welcoming Sessions to all family members that would like to drop in on a Wednesday afternoon between 1pm and 3pm. They will assist and signpost you to extra family support, housing, welfare benefits advice or debt as well as an array of other things. Click here for more information:
