Family Support and Welfare

Family Support & Guidance

In our most OFSTED report, the welfare and love staff showed to our pupils is one of the reasons we believe children and their families speak so highly about St Cuthbert's. We place a huge amount of value on building positive relationships through our mission statement: We Love, We Learn, We Grow.


We understand how important it is to support our parents and carers, as well as the children who attend our school, therefore, we have created and will continue to develop this page to signpost parents and carers to useful websites and resources that can help support our families.
