Welfare for Young People and Families
During the time of school closure, young people and families will continue to have access to vital supports to ensure their safety and welfare. The following is a list of weblinks and contact numbers for services that may be of help.
Class teachers will be communicating regarding learning through a range of online platforms. Should you have an urgent issue that is not focussed on learning and teaching and requires contact with school, please use the following email address: PerthGrammar@pkc.gov.uk. While this is checked regularly, it is not monitored at all times. Information received will be passed to relevant staff (eg. Guidance Teachers) who will then respond as appropriate. Our telephone switchboard may be operational at times and voicemail is available, however please use email as first option and only call in exceptional circumstances: 01738 427800.
