Our role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. We can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child’s education, behaviour and wellbeing. We are also here as someone to talk to if you need it!
We can meet with you at home or in school at a time to suit yourself. Advice and support is confidential although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school’s Safeguarding Policy.
We may not have all the answers, but hopefully we can help you to work out how to find them.
Healthy children are successful learners. We support children with long term health conditions to help minimise any negative effects on their health needs, on their school life and promote emotional wellbeing.
We recognise that the lives of children living with a long term condition and without appropriate support are at an increased risk of stress, anxiety and depression. We work closely with the children, their families, staff and external agencies.
