Family Link at St Michael's
At St Michael's School we believe in working closely with the local community. We employ our own FAMILY LINK WORKER, Eva Stewart (Mon - Thur) to support and develop our links with parents and the wider community,
My role as ‘Family Link Worker’ involves working with children and families, I have good links with all the staff to enable good support and ensure the best possible outcomes for all.
The work I do includes: mentoring; family support; general help to reduce anxiety, raise self-esteem, and to help establish family routines, boundaries and consequences.
Family SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) is run regularly: if you feel the family group would be of benefit to you and your child please let me know.
We have a family breakfast and reading club, this is run in the ‘children’s kitchen’ 3 days per week.
I monitor attendance and punctuality throughout the school and aim to support families where attendance is a concern.
As a school we work closely with outside agencies, we can refer and signpost to these agencies to ensure families have access to the appropriate service.
These agencies include:
Active Families – Helen Newberry
Education Welfare Officer - Steve Gozra
Parents and Carers - Leonie Pollinger
School Health Nurse - TBC
Survive – Charlotte Reeves
Walking for Health – Carly Urbanski
