We know that for many people this is a difficult time. At school we want to continue to be able to support our children and families. Please contact the school office via email (admin@arden.stockport.sch.uk) if there is anything we can do to help and we will get in touch with you. Our pastoral team can provide emotional and practical support, including signposting to other services and providing foodbank vouchers.
