Help and Support for Families

We  support pupils and families in a number of ways. The first point of contact is via your class teacher - available every day from 8:00 through messaging using the class dojo system. We can arrange face to face meeting from 8:30-8:45 daily or after school by appointment.


We are delighted to have Mrs Light as part of our team who is our Early Help Practitioner. This role helps us to support families with children's behaviours, attitudes and feelings; boundaries and routines; attendance issues; finances and where to go for specialist help (through signposting services). Mrs Light also liaises with social care and agency workers who may also be working with our families and she is available every Wednesday morning on the playground before school if you wish to speak to her directly. Alternatively, you can ask to be contacted by telephone or arrange a meeting. Mrs Light is also in school on Fridays when she works directly with pupils.


Mrs Willsher's role deals with children with complex needs and also pupils with safeguarding concerns or ongoing cases. This includes pupils who are supported by medical staff and those who are applying for EHCP (education health care plans)


For daily support you should speak with the class teacher or contact Mrs Wilmot or Mrs Domkowicz for any help you or your child may need.


We also post useful information about support for families on the class dojo (please sign up to access this), in the 'News' section (for latest news and electronic copies of newsletters) and also under the 'Children' tab on this website - scroll down to see the support avenues listed.
