Community Links

The school continues to place great value on its links with the wider community, beyond the confines of the school and these are wide ranging.

Please note: whilst Alton Park Junior School wishes to bring local clubs/events to your attention, we are not affiliated with these and parents/carers are responsible for carrying out their own safeguarding enquiries.

EXTRA Support for Families – a Tendring-based Charitable Organisation

EXTRA – Support for Families (EXTRA) is here to help anyone caring for children in the Tendring district to meet the challenges of parenting.  We offer local opportunities for parents to meet at fun days, one-off workshops and a range of parenting programmes.
EXTRA acts as a central agency to co-ordinate the provision of parenting support throughout Tendring. They have a parenting platform every couple of months where practitioners involved in parenting, from Barnardo’s Children’s Centres, schools, adult community learning, health and so on, gather to share information on what is going on and to find ways to provide what parents need in the area.
