Parent Information Contact
What is a PIC
A PIC is someone who is equipped to provide information, support and advice for parents and carers about local services, parenting issues and more.

- Ms Goldfinch
- Mrs Jenner.
Where can I contact my PIC?
Mrs Courtnell is always available at the Reception desk.
What information is available?
Your PIC team have access to a wealth of information – what they don’t know they will try and find out for you.
Information for Parents/Carers from the Bexhill Consortium of Schools
Every school in the Consortium has a PIC (Parent Information Contact).
In some schools the Consortium has been able to sponsor the development of Parent Rooms. A place in school where parents can meet with the PIC in a small group or one to one and where the Link Workers for the school and Family Learning Providers can support child and family learning activities. Many schools have a ‘drop-in’ time for parents where they can call in for a friendly chat. Parent Rooms are friendly and inviting places.
Although some primary schools do not have the space to dedicate a room specifically for parents, there will always be a warm welcome in all Bexhill schools and the PIC (Parent Information Contact) provides information and friendly support.
