Care first Survey
Due to the pandemic, the Care first company offered all schools within the Trust a year’s subscription for the parents and carers of our pupils, which the Trust have bought in to. We would like to review how useful this has been across our schools for parents and carers within the Trust.
Care first provides support with topics such as stress, debt, bereavement, relationships, nutrition, and wellbeing including mental health. There is also a parent helpline available 24/7 all year round where you can speak with an expert.
We would welcome everyone to complete the very short survey whether you have used the service or not by clicking on the link below. Thank you.
This information will help us to consider how this resource is being used and how this can be promoted further.
This survey will close on 14th May 2021.
