WELCOME

Welcome to St Mary’s RC Primary School, Stockport. Our school serves a richly diverse school community in which different languages, cultures and religions learn together in harmony. We work in partnership with parents and carers and the wider community to ensure the best for all our children. We believe that children deserve the best possible chances in life and that they learn best when there are strong links between home and school. We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. The staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.

Please take the time to browse our website and do contact us if you would like to find out any more information about the school.

Caring, Working, Living:  Improving employment opportunities for working mums and carers

Are you looking to return to work after a break to bring up children or provide unpaid care for a relative?

If so, the Caring, Working, Living project could help you on your way.

Caring, Working, Living is a Greater Manchester wide project that will target mainly private sector small and medium employers, to support them to develop their recruitment and employment practices to make job opportunities more     accessible to Returners.

Returners are people who have taken at least a year out of work to undertake caring responsibilities for children, or  elderly or sick relatives. Returners are looking to return to the workplace at the level they were at when they last worked. Research has shown that the majority of people in this position are women. Our project is aimed at non-graduates and carers experiencing economic disadvantage, as well as older workers.

Support available to parents and carers:

-practical support with CVs and interview tips in your area

-financial support: we can help with some of the costs associated with job searching, such as arranging alternative care whilst attending an interview or training event

-links to employers across Greater Manchester that have family-friendly recruitment and employment practices such as flexible working

-workplace visits to employers

-support from employers once in work

 

How to get help:

-parents/carers can refer themselves or can be referred from organisations who provide support with employment

-referral forms can be found on the GMCVO website or

Returners can call 0161 277 1000 and ask to speak to     someone about the Caring, Working, Living project

-Returners can visit the GMCVO Caring, Working, Living Facebook page to connect with other Returners to hear their stories and top tips
