At Whitchurch Primary School, we value the importance of developing strong links between the school and local, regional, national and international communities. Through visits, assemblies, concerts and special events, we involve our pupils in the local community, so that they learn how to participate in a practical way in the life and concerns of their neighbourhood and communities.
Working with parents, local residents, the business community, public services, and voluntary services teaches the children to become active citizens.
Whitchurch Primary School is not a building in isolation, but is situated within the community of Whitchurch and surrounding area, which is part of the larger community of Cardiff and Wales.
It is important that Whitchurch Primary School, its children, staff and governors are recognised as part of the local, wider and international community.

Families First is a new programme to provide support for families. A range of different services have been set up to work with families across Cardiff to make sure that they get help when they need it.
Families First is managed in Cardiff by the Cardiff Partnership team, based in Cardiff Council and delivered by a range of partner organisations across Cardiff.
Cardiff Families First programme is for families that need some extra help or support as long as:
they live in Cardiff and
they have a child under the age of 18 (or 25 if the young person has additional needs) and/or
they are expecting a baby
The focus of the programme is on early intervention and prevention. It aims to provide families with the right help at the right time to prevent situations getting worse.
In particular, it aims to provide support for families that are on low income or are vulnerable in some other way.
