Support For Parents

“Being a parent is not always easy. You are not alone if you find it difficult sometimes.

But it’s OK. You can talk to us.”

“There is no such thing as a perfect parent and we all need a little help and support at times.

Every child is different and at every stage we are faced with new challenges and situations to handle.”

Open for Parents are going to be running some really useful parenting workshops at Meridian over the next few months. You will see that I have added the information into Key Dates above and these will be added to the school website calendar too.

Open for Parents provide information, advice and support for parents and carers who want to support their child’s development and wellbeing, who may be experiencing some difficulty with managing their child’s behaviour or who simply want some tips and strategies for dealing with common childhood and teen issues.

Open for Parents want everyone in a parenting role in East Sussex to feel supported and ensure that East Sussex is a great place to grow up. Open for Parents offers a variety of support through the Triple P programme: talks, one-off groups, longer courses, brief one-to-one support and online courses and this support is going to be available at Meridian in the summer terms. Open for Parents aim to provide practical positive ways to manage some of the challenges you may encounter. They can also signpost parents to other appropriate services and work in partnership with other agencies to support families. Open for parents is funded by East Sussex County Council and the NHS Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group. Triple P delivery is supported by Triple P UK.
