Support for Families

St John's is a welcoming, community school where all staff are committed to supporting the full development of every child and the wellbeing of our families. However, we appreciate that sometimes families may need further support.

In this section, you can find resources to support both adults and children, including physical and mental health and wellbeing. 

These resources are suggested and supported by Stockport local authority.

The Solihull Approach offers parenting courses to support children with their mental health and wellbeing and Stockport are providing free access for our families. Please contact school for more information.
