Supporting Families

Our pastoral team at Central Lancaster High School know that the best outcomes for pupils are achieved when school and home work together sharing a consistent message with the young person.

At times, families and children can require additional support within and out of the classroom and we offer a range of interventions and services led by school as part of our early help offer through which an allocated member of staff will meet with you, discuss any barriers being faced and then make suggestions about support that we can offer.
