Family Support at St Michael's

 

At St Michael's School we believe in working closely with parents and the local community. We employ our own Family Liaison Officer, Eva Stewart (Mon - Fri mornings and Wed afternoon), to support and develop our links with parents and the wider community.

 

 

My role as ‘Family Liaison’ 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 Thrive, linking with our whole-school Thrive approach, 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 also aim to support families where attendance is a concern, working closely with the Deputy Head and EWO.

 

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 - Sukhi Gozra

Parents and Carers - Leonie Pollinger

School Health Nurse - Laura Stokes

Survive – Charlotte Reeves

Walking for Health – Carly Urbanski
