Family Support Worker
My role in school is to offer support, advice or just a listening ear to parents and children when they need this. It might be around issues to do with separation, divorce and bereavement or it might be more practical problems relating to housing or debt or worries about children beginning to push boundaries and mums and dads wanting advice about where to go for help around their children’s behavior. I’m happy to help or simply to sign-post parents to other agencies and organisations who can help them. I also have a role alongside Mrs Williams in implementing our school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedures.
I work in school Monday to Thursday from 8:30 to 4:30 and you can contact me to make an appointment through the main school number or just ask at reception when you are dropping off or collecting children. I look forward to meeting you.
As a school we extend a warm invitation to all parents who are interested in further learning or training in a wide variety of topics. We offer courses including, ‘Cooking on a Budget’, ‘Family First Aid’, ‘Helping Your Child to Prepare for School’ and ‘Basic Computing Skills’ to name but a few.
Alongside Cheshire West and Chester Family Learning, we put on short courses which help parents wanting qualifications to help them get back into work. We are always keen to hear from members of our school community about courses or training that they would be interested in and you can do this by contacting school direct and asking to speak to Mrs Howell.
