Family Support

Family Support Team information:

 

Miss Cummings - Family Liaison Officer

Mrs T Bentley - Behaviour Mentor/Family Support.

The Family Support team are located in the Pastoral Room. We work with children and families across the school in many different ways for example -  we deliver intervention programmes supporting social/emotional needs. We support attendance with home visits/Early Help Assessments. We work with outside agencies such as Strengthening Families Workers, PCSO, local Youth Zones to make sure our children are able to access intervention services required to build on their individual needs in a supportive way. These agencies will also deliver intervention work/assemblies in school. We will support with behaviour by offering home visits to work with parents creating strategies together. There are parenting sessions available which are led by Miss Cummings. We offer bereavement support and much more. Please contact us for further information/advice.

Early Help Assessment (EHA): 

This assessment is a family led approach to assist you achieving goals you have identified. It provides support for families by working together with professionals once consent has been gained. A meeting will then be arranged for the assessment to be complete. The EHA can help identify and build on strengths and help develop skills to manage future difficulties that you may face. It ensures you have a main point of contact. Additional services within the community will be easy to access. Both you and your family will be involved in identifying areas for support. There are simple referrals which can be made, allowing access to further support. The assessment addresses who will complete each action set. This assessment will help you overcome issues such as poor attendance/behaviour and many others.
