Family Support

Mrs Taylor-Janes is our Family Support Worker. She can offer help, advice and support to our families in a range of ways. If you require any assistance, or simply want a ‘listening ear’, we are here to help. Areas we can support include:

  • our local Early Help Hub
  • managing children’s behaviour at home
  • parenting programmes
  • accessing funding for free school meals or school uniform grants
  • food bank vouchers
  • advice and support with rehousing
  • form-filling and much more.

We have lots of links with other agencies too so if we can’t help, hopefully, we'll know someone who can!

Behaviour Support

Miss Malli is our Behaviour Mentor. Her role in school are to support children to achieve their potential by overcoming barriers to learning both inside and outside the school. We use a variety of strategies such as 1:1 mentoring, nurture groups, classroom support, lunchtime clubs, parental engagement and the delivery of Forest School sessions.
