Wallsend Children’s Community

Carville Primary School is a member of the Wallsend Children’s Community. The core principles:

Create a co-ordinated chain of support for children that runs from birth to early childhood and spans all contexts of their lives, specifically education, health and emotional well-being, employment, social relations and personal development, self-empowerment  and material well-being

Focus on a coherent place that make sense locally

Involve a wide range of partners to work jointly and under common strategy (e.g. education, health, social care, police, civil society, local business)

Base this strategy on a deep local analysis and robust, continuous evaluation

Partner schools have agreed their key priorities over the next five years:

Getting things right early

Being Fit for Life                                                                              

Increased Community Resilience

Behaviour Support Services

Parents may experience difficulty in managing children’s behaviour, particularly as children grow up and experiment with pushing the boundaries. School can provide access to support for families who wish to tackle these issues. Please contact the Headteacher if you would like further information.
