About Us

Family Support Worker

At Western we believe that families, parents and carers of our pupils should feel as included and supported by the school as their children are.

By supporting the family we are supporting the child to achieve their potential and get the best experience from their education and home life.  My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to families and to listen to any concerns you may have about your child's education, behaviour or wellbeing.

Help and support may include:

  • Helping to improve the home/school link
  • Strategies for parents/carers to improve behaviour in the home
  • Support for those families undergoing change such as family breakdown/separation and divorce/ ill health and bereavement
  • Signposting and help to access services from external agencies and community services
  • Helping with applications for secondary school/benefits/housing
  • Support with school attendance and lateness issues
  • Safeguarding or child protection concerns
  • Support to access Special Education Needs or Education and Health Care Plans
  • 1-1 and group sessions with children
  • A listening ear

I am in the playground most mornings for an informal chat but can also arrange a meeting in school. Please contact me via the main school office.
