Foodbank Appeal - for full details please see the attached letter (Parents Tab). The demand for food has increased dramatically which has had an impact on what the Foodbank can provide owing to a dramatic fall off of public donations.  If you are able to support with monetary donation please see their website: www.letchworth.foodbank.org.uk.

Hitchin Partnership provides a family support service to schools in Hitchin and the surrounding villages.  We work alongside families giving practical support and user friendly parenting strategies.


The team is experienced in supporting families where children have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and provides advice on friendship and bullying issues.


This includes looking at family routines, addressing attendance and challenging behaviour.


Through funding from schools, the support of local community groups and fundraising we provide practical help in times of hardship and crisis.  Our service prides itself on joined up working between all settings from Children Centre's through to Secondary Schools which means the whole family is supported to ensure the very best outcomes.  This in turn helps families build confidence with parenting approaches, providing children with happier and healthier lives to enable them to achieve their best.
