Information about family life and support

Family life can be rewarding and fulfilling, but there are times when it can be overwhelming and you need some support. In school we can support in the following ways:

  • Education Welfare Officer – Andrew Broadhead – can advise and support with attendance issues
  • School Nurse – Alison Woodbridge – can advise and support with children’s health issues
  • Fiona Brooks – Deputy Headteacher – can lend a listening ear, advise and support on safeguarding and education issues and signpost support from the Local Authority, charities and other local services.
  • Jenny Moore – Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator – advise and support on children’s special educational needs
  • Natasha Jones – Learning Mentor – advise and support on children’s behaviour, mental health and bereavement
  • Mrs Maw – School Business Manager, Mrs Lewin and Mrs King - Office staff – advise and support on school financial issues.
