At Barton Clough we value the contribution that all adults make to the lives of our children. Families and carers are central to this. From parental feedback we are aware that sometimes Dads and male carers have less opportunity to work with school, for a variety of reasons. You have also told us that sometimes the men within our community can find it harder to ask for help or to access support. Dads and male carers may also have less of a network with other dads and carers.
We are therefore really keen to improve and develop our support and opportunities, specifically for Dad's and male carers at Barton Clough.
It is our intention to establish a group of Dads and male carers to help shape what this looks like in our school. If you would like to be a part of this exciting opportunity, please contact Ms Bates:
