Along with supporting our children on a daily basis, at Corpus Christi PS we also offer support to our families. This is done through our Family Support Team.

We work with parents and their children in their homes and in school with the aim to increase the skills, confidence and abilities of all family members to live their daily lives in a positive and safe manner.
