Churchfield is a family, and we have a very dedicated and highly-skilled Wellbeing Team who are here to support parents as well as children.
Our Wellbeing Team has expertise in a wide range of areas. We strongly believe that children learn best when they are happy, settled and have good attendance, and we strive to ensure that every child has the opportunity to grow, achieve and shine. We know that this works best when parents are supported too, and we support families with a wide range of issues. We can support with almost anything that you can think of, whether that be help completing a form, a cup of tea and an ear to listen, signposting to external support or help sorting bus routes. This doesn’t stop at 3:20pm, and if you need to speak to someone, no matter how big or small the issue may seem, please do!
See below for more information on how we can support you as parents:

Parent and Child Sports
We run a number of parent & child sports events over the year, where parents can get active. It’s also a great opportunity to meet and chat to other parents. Adults vs Children rounders is very popular every summer! Physical activity can have huge benefits for mental health, so we also run a number of other parent events over the year.
Bingo and Quiz Nights
We host two bingo and quiz nights for our families every term, pop along and join in for FREE!.
Being outside has proven benefits for both physical and mental health. From 2023-24 we’ll be running termly guided ‘wellbeing walks’ in the local community and wider area, like the Peak District!
It’s OK To Not Be OK
Parenting can be difficult, and everyone faces their own barriers and hurdles to overcome. What is important is that we face these hurdles together, as ultimately this supports the children of our school. If you ever feel like you need to speak to someone or are struggling with mental health, please just call in to see us – a problem shared is a problem halved!
