Family Link at St Michael's

 

 

 

Family Support

 

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.

We monitor attendance and punctuality throughout the school.

The classes with the best weekly attendance win the class trophy.
