Family Support Group


Are you the parent of a student at The Limes College?

  • Do you need support?

  • Do you feel like you don’t understand your child?

  • Do you feel like you are living with an alien?

  • Do you feel like you have nowhere else to turn?

  • Do you want to improve your relationship with your teenager?


We hold a regular Family Support Group Meeting on Thursdays at 9.45am The Limes College. Parents and students are welcomed with a very informal induction and drink. At 10.30am your son/daughter will be escorted back to their normal lessons, if appropriate, and at this point you will have chance to discuss any issues or problems with the group. If you feel you are unable to discuss your concerns in a group environment, you may wish to talk in confidence to a staff member. If so, please call Jackie Lawrence here at The Limes College on mobile: 07736 338 809 and she will call you back at your convenience.


Our Family Support Group has now been running successfully for over two years. The group has been visited by Paul Martin (Chief Executive of Sutton Council) who commented that he found the group to be amongst “the very best I have seen since joining Sutton Council”. This kind of positive feedback highlights the dedicated work that both our staff and families contribute to the group. Some of our regular parents who have been attending since the start of the group have applied to The Limes College to become voluntary support workers.


Also, as part of our provision at The Limes College, we are able to offer our families a range of support, advice and activities that they may find helpful. Our Family Outreach Workers will be happy to contact you to introduce themselves and to discuss any concerns you or your family may have, with a view to arranging support you feel may be beneficial.
