Children Centre Group: Broxbourne West Group
St Mary’s has been the Lead Agency for the Allsorts Children’s Centre since it was established in 2009. From April 1st 2015, St Mary’s extended its responsibilities to be the Lead Agency for the Broxbourne West Children’s Centre Group. This group includes Allsorts, Longfield and Great Wood Children’s Centres. The reason for these changes is the reorganisation of Children’s Centres by Hertfordshire County Council.
The acceptance of the new Children’s Centre Group contract reflects the continuing commitment of the governors to ensuring that the families of St Mary’s students are well supported and are able to access high quality services from one location. In addition, the Governors recognise their commitment to, and their vision of, being a Church School that genuinely is serving the local community.
Mrs Sue Potter, Director of Children and Family Services is the group manager for the Broxbourne West Children’s Centre Group. She leads an excellent team who work out of all of the Children’s Centre Group buildings as well as in the local community.
Allsorts Children’s Centre is located in a dedicated building that is on the St Mary’s CE High School site. Longfield Children’s Centre is sited in the grounds of Flamstead End Primary School, and Great Wood is sited to the side of Essendon CE Primary School.
A range of services for children and young people aged 0 – 19 and their families is delivered from the three sites and various satellite venues within the local community. The views of parents/carers and service users are always welcomed by the team and feedback is used to organise services to support local families. Feedback can be sent directly to the Children’s Centre Team c/o Allsorts Children’s Centre or it can be given to any Children’s Centre Worker by phone, email or in person.
Any family or young person wishing to access support can contact the Children’s Centre direct on 01992 633761 or ask a member of St Mary’s staff for more information.
