What do I do and how can I help?
My role is to provide support and information to families with children at the school. I offer parents, carers and children support and advice on a whole range of issues that may be impacting their well-being at school or at home. I am available for informal chats, drop-ins and pre-arranged appointments.
An integral part of my role is linking families with other agencies, both statutory and non-statutory such as School Nurses, Education Welfare Service, Citizens Advice Bureau, Counselling Services, etc.
In addition, I also work with families to ensure that their children attend school regularly. When the need arises, I will link in with the Schools' Attendance Officer and work closely with them to improve individual and whole school attendance.
If you think I might be able to help you or your child in anyway, even if it is simply to provide a listening ear on a bad day, please feel free to contact me. Anything discussed will be treated as confidential, with the exception of matters relating to Child Protection concerns. Whilst I may not always be able to help directly, I will always do my best to put you in contact with someone who can. If necessary, I can provide on-going support.
