The Family Support Team
The school has a Family support team that are employed within the school to offer early help to families and children, to support them before situations get to crisis point. Their aim is prevention, not cure.
They remove barriers to children’s learning, build relationships with parents and carers and are the link between school and home that enables us to understand more about the children’s home lives and the impact this has on them in school.
They support with issues such as housing, homelessness, finances, domestic abuse, mobility difficulties, health problems, parents in prison, bereavement, attendance, parenting capacity, family separation, attachment issues and any other things that will be having a negative impact on children and families.
This enables them to provide high quality interventions and signpost effectively
