Even with all of the amazing support from Chailey Heritage School, many parents rely on the support, encouragement and information that they get from other parents in similar situations to them. For that reason CHIPS was created.
CHIPS is a group of past, present and future parents and carers of children that attend Chailey Heritage School.
CHIPS runs a successful Facebook page that has over 80 parent/carer members. It is run by parents for parents. It is a great source of information on a huge range of issues, not just school related. We have had many posts and conversations on a variety of important subjects from ‘ preparing for surgery’ to working out when the children need to be dressed up for World Book Day!
CHIPS also run occasional coffee mornings and information events in association with the Jewell Trust liaison worker; these allow parents and carers to meet face to face and share their experiences. Information on these will be on the Facebook page, and details will come out from the school office.
CHIPS have decorated and furnished a room that the school provided which is now available to all parents and carers who are at school and have time between appointments, or are settling their child in to school. This need was identified by parents, and the school very much supported the inititative.
Please do look us up on Facebook as we would very much like to have you, as past, present and future parents and carers of children at Chailey Heritage, join us so that we can continue to support each other in our ambition to give the very best for our children and each other.
As with any group we are always happy to have people that want to be more actively involved. If this is you then please contact Heather Mealing, Issy’s mum, through the school office or on the Facebook page!
