Parents' Page

This page is intended to signpost useful support and guidance for the parents of students at Passmores.  Bringing up children is a challenging thing to do and also an incredibly important one. That is why we have collated this information here.

We believe that asking for help or support is a sign of strength that shows one's commitment to being the best parent one can be.

If you know of any sources of information, advice, guidance or support that could feature on this page, please contact Angie Roberts at the school (see email on right-hand side of page).
