Pastoral/Family Support service
I am excited to be joining Heatherwood to support our young people and their families on a daily basis.
I am here to support, signpost and refer to services we feel would benefit you and your family.
In addition to working with individual families, I am also here to organise regular parent and carer meetings and events where we can discuss general needs and issues that arise in everyday life.
As a trained safeguarding lead I am also the Lead Practitioner for Early Help Assessments. The EHA process is a common process to identify more accurately and speedily, the additional needs of children and young people. This process creates an holistic view of the child and their family, to ensure we are meeting all of their needs and can be used to access a variety of local support including Short Break packages.
I am a very good listener and offer advice in a friendly and supportive way so please do not hesitate to contact me, at the school, with any issue you would like discuss confidentially.
I will be present in school for 3 days per week, but available for 5 so can be contacted with any issue at any time.
I have already met and supported some wonderful families and now look forward to meeting more of you as time goes on.
If you feel I can help you in any way please feel free to get in touch by contacting school number on 01302 322044 and ask for our parent support advisor.
