Community Hub/Parent Support Information & Charity work

Castlechurch Community Hub

We have recently opened a Community hub at school. It was officially opened by our chair of governors. The hub is a warm and welcoming place for our parents and wider community to meet. The local Spar shop sponsor the hub providing us with things so we can offer free hot drinks and snacks to our visitors. We run a variety of groups such as toddlers, craft club, cuppa club and offer free drinks and snacks. The local health visitor service and baby bank use us as a clinic and starts supporting our future intake right from birth.

From the hub we can refer people for help such as budgeting or to specialist support such as Women’s Aid or the church food bank located next to school on Milton Grove. We are a school that cares and our community is part of our school family. Our door is open and the hub is for you. Please see Mrs Cranwell if she can help you in any way!
