Family Support Worker & Learning Mentor

misstappenden

As part of the usual school support package, I work with children individually or in small groups to support their learning, promote good social skills, address issues around behaviour and provide emotional check-ins to help them cope during the School day. Every child has different needs and those needs can change over time or can be affected by whatever is going on for you as a family.

I work with parents, grandparents and carers to help families overcome any barriers to their children’s learning by providing advice and support when things are getting difficult. This can happen from time to time for all sorts of reasons and I hope you will feel comfortable approaching me for help around issues like health, parenting skills, relationship breakdown, feeling included, moving onto Secondary or anything else you might be dealing with as a family.

You are welcome to join me for our weekly Parent Drop-ins which run every Monday during term time from 11.15am – 12.15pm in the Family Room where we can chat & answer any questions you might have about your child’s wellbeing.

If you would like to attend the drop-in or arrange another time to meet for a chat, please let Mrs Crook know on the usual school number.
