We value the role of the parent.
We work co-operatively with parents and carers to ensure our children achieve their full potential.
Children's Welfare Officer
Meanwood Primary School has a children's welfare officer employed directly by the school. Mrs Helen Hart can support parents directly with advice, or can make referrals to other services, for any family / home issues such as children's behaviour, benefits, debt, domestic abuse, adult mental health, housing and many more. If you would like to speak to her, please contact the school office. Click here for more information
If you think an Early Help Assessment may help with your family, do not hesitate to ask the Class Teacher, Children's Welfare Officer, Learning Mentor, Head Teacher or the Special Needs Co-Ordinator for further information.

Sure Start Children's Centres
Our local Children's Centres are at Meanwood, Norden and Howard Street and staff there can help you with any concerns you may have about your pre school - 5 year old child/ren.
