The Family Centre is Transforming 

The history…

When schools reopened in September 2020, we relocated our Nursery provision to our  Family Centre, to create more space and a safer environment for our pupils and staff. Although our former Family Centre was much in demand before the pandemic, serving around 100 families per week, new Covid rules meant it was no longer allowed to function as a Family Centre. Relocating our Nursery not only gave us the opportunity to open safely, it created a chance to increase our Nursery provision, which has been much needed for many years.

However, as we ease our way out of the pandemic, we know from speaking to our community that our Family Centre services are needed more than ever before and our community want us to create a new space for their needs.

Our former Family Centre was a real success story; supporting thousands of families in the borough. We know what works and what can be improved. As well as supporting families, our new Community Centre will support local residents of all ages, as well as families who come from further afield across the borough of Haringey in search of our provision.

 

The future…

Our New Community Centre

Our Community Centre will be made for and made by our local community.

We will redesign, rebuild and refurbish our former Nursery space on North Hill into our new Community Centre. A multi-purpose space, open all year round for the school and wider community.

We have come together and supported each other during these difficult Covid times and we now need a new space to make it easier for us all.

Our Community Centre will:

  • Support vulnerable new families and provide a safe space for mothers, fathers, carers and children
  • Bring local residents together and reduce isolation
  • Increase the opportunity for our Parent School Association to meet and support each other and the school
  • Provide a community service hub for our community
  • Improve the local offering for spaces to rent for the arts and wellbeing classes and workshops
