The Wyre Forest and Hagley Project (WHP) is a service open to any parent or carer with a child attending a local primary school in Kidderminster, Bewdley, Stourport or Hagley.

WHP provide support early, helping to ensure that our pupils can make the most of their time in school. WHP are here to support your child and your family and can help with:


  • Improving school attendance
  • Avoiding exclusion
  • Emotional / behavioural issues
  • Relationship and family difficulties
  • Debt and money worries
  • Bereavement
  • Healthy relationships
  • And much more....

Our WHP Link Worker supports the work of our school and recognises the importance of strong home-school partnerships. WHP have worked with many of our children and parents since 2009, successfully addressing a range of issues that may affect home or school life.


If your child has recently started having a difficult time at school then we may suggest that you speak with our WHP Link Worker. If you feel that you could benefit from some support then please contact the WHP Link Worker direct or speak to school reception. Our WHP Link Worker is often also around on Parents' Evenings, at new intake events or on the playground at the beginning or the end of the school day.


“The work that you have done with her around her self-esteem has been fantastic, her confidence has grown and she is now better able to communicate her feelings rather than keeping them in”.

Parent, Bewdley

“…very helpful and understanding in relation to behaviour difficulties of children. Took the time to listen to our problems rather than turn up with a fixed agenda”.

Parent, Stourport


WHP also run friendly courses for parents in the local area. These are relaxed and informal and held in small groups. It’s a great way to meet a handful of other parents for support and to share ideas. All courses are FREE. Please call 01562 851292 (8.30am to 3pm, 24hr answer machine) to find out more and book your place, or speak to our Link Worker here in school.


“I sat here at the start thinking yeah, yeah and basically taking the mick but it’s amazing. Everything you have talked about and suggested is true and it’s working. I am even talking to my mates about it now.”

“They do as they are asked without me shouting. Everyone seems happier. I’m feeling calmer, more in control. I’m more aware of myself.”
