Meet the Mersey Park Parent Partnership Group. This group was set up as a means of gathering parents’ views on different policies, events and activities within school. There is at least one representative parent for each year group and if you have any questions or queries please feel free to approach them and ask and they will endeavour to help.
We are proud to have been awarded the national Leading Parent Partnership Award to acknowledge the work that we do alongside our families.

Hi my name is Emma Ryan. I have a daughter in Year 3 and my son has just left Year 6 to go to Bebington High. I am a member of the Parent Partnership Group and I have helped with toast.

Just before Christmas the Mersey Park Parent Partnership Group took a trip to the Neo centre in Birkenhead.
We were given a tour of this fantastic facility which offers a wide range of support for the people in the local area. While there we met some of the wonderful staff and volunteers who work hard at this centre to provide services for their community.
Neo was founded in 2013 and started offering food assistance and support, giving out crisis food bags to families who need it in the local community. Through growing links with other community groups and Lidl, Neo began to offer surplus food to community members, through the first of Neo’s community food markets. Since the beginning Neo has run and supported over 100 community events across Wirral and has become a well known provider of support across many communities.
Some of the services provided here include:
- Social Supermarket – Tuesday 1pm-3pm, Wednesday 11am-2pm, Friday 5pm-7pm
- Bingo Night – 6pm-8pm
- Community Cafe – Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 10am – 2pm
- Community Dinner Club – Monday 12pm-1pm
- Children’s Night (7-13 year olds) – Tuesday and Thursday 4:30pm-6:30pm
And many more brilliant activities and ways to get involved.
If you would like more information please speak to one of the Parent Partnership members, Miss Spruce or Mrs Hardy, or alternatively visit http://www.neocommunitycafe.org.uk/.
The Mersey Park Parent Partnership Group recently took a trip to the Hive in Birkenhead. We were given a tour of this fantastic facility which caters for children aged 8 to 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities. Our year 4, 5 and 6 children have all visited this wonderful purpose-built facility this year and thoroughly enjoyed all the engaging activities available. Some of our children do already visit the Hive and tell us all about the great time they have there.
There are leaflets available in the school office if you would like any more information or visit https://www.thehiveyouthzone.org/
