Advice and Support for Parents/Carers

At Bluecoat Meres Primary we believe that there should be a strong partnership between the Academy, students and parents / carers in order to ensure that students are happy, supported in their education and fulfil their potential and ambitions: our aim is for our students to reach their first destinations, including to get in to the best universities in the country, if that is what they wish.  Below are a range of resources designed to help parents and carers support young people with any problems they may be facing.
