Supporting our Students and Families

The Cowplain School Family Hub

The Cowplain School believes strongly in supporting our families to thrive in a way that will help your children through their education whilst at The Cowplain School and give them the confidence to succeed as they move through life.  With this in mind we have created a Family Hub on site. 

The aims of the Family Hub are to welcome any family who may need support with a wide range of difficulties.  In these challenging times, financial hardship, rising fuel bills and a lack of money to buy food can feel over-whelming at times.

The Family Hub will provide a member of staff to act as an Advocate for each family who we support.  The Advocate will meet with a family member and work alongside them to find some solutions to their difficulties.  This is done in our Family Hub, which is a private and comfortable setting where the advocate will be able to explain in more detail how they can help. 

Following an initial meeting, a weekly call will be made by the Advocate to the family to see how things are going.  If there are any schemes to help with food, fuel, finance or technology for your child, the Advocate will be able to advise on ways to access this support.  There may be other concerns you have regarding school for your children that the staff member may be able to help with.
