Supporting the children and families of Ark Conway Primary Academy
Our in-school mental health support service, Place2Be, has launched a new site for parents and carers called Parenting Smart. The site offers practical advice on supporting your child and managing behaviour with short articles and videos on a range of topics such as transition to secondary school, meltdowns and sleep difficulties.

There are a number of ways to access the support services here at ARK Conway.
- Make an appointment to speak to the Principal (all meetings are treated as confidential)
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once a meeting has been organised, the Principal will discuss the different ways in which the school can offer support and a support date will be set.
The Principal will then present the case to the Support Service team without naming any parties involved.
The Support team consists of; the chair of governors, community governor and a member of the ARK schools central team. A decision will be made about the amount/ level of support which can be provided and the Principal will share this with the family involved.
