Community Team




Welcome to the Community Page for all of our families and carers of children here at Sparken Hill Academy.


Our Community Team help with a variety of issues including:


Offering support to pupils, parents and families on a wide range of issues

Accredited parenting courses to support parents/carers to understand their child's behaviour

Helping improve attendance and punctuality

Promotion of positive behaviour

Promotion of parental engagement

Well Being support sessions to help parents/carers mental health


We offer 1-1 sessions with children who may need a little extra support who may appear as anxious or withdrawn and equally support parents and carers with illness, bereavement, child's behaviour or domestic abuse  to name a few.



Keep an eye out on your emails and texts of the fun sessions we will be running alongside the coffee mornings available for ALL.


As always, the Community Team are available to talk through any worries you may have so please ask at reception for one of us to contact you or text Karen on 07540 686381. Alternatively, we are in the playgrounds each morning so feel free to pop over and chat to us.
