School Family Support Worker
Hello, I am Louise Saunders and I am the Family Support Worker here at Cherry Hinton C of EPrimary School. I am at school for four days every week. You can see me before school in the playground on a Monday morning or make an appointment to see me during the school day at a time that is convenient to you.
Many children, at some point in their school lives, will have to cope with certain issues which may affect their ability to achieve in school. These may include:
*Coping with changes (such as starting school, moving class/house, new baby in the family)
*Separation, divorce or bereavement
These can lead to poor attendance or problems while a child is at school. They can also have an effect on how a child behaves, how they feel or how they cope with day-to-day situations. It is here that the Family Support Worker can offer help and support, a listening ear or by directing you to other agencies should you need their support.
If the school is concerned about your child’s attendance I may be asked to contact you to discuss the reasons for their absence or lateness and to make sure that you receive any support that you might need.
If you have any concerns, however big or small, don't sit and worry, come and see me and we can help find a solution for your concerns.
During the year look out for:
*Stay and Play sessions
*Family Learning week
*Adult Learning Workshops
*Getting ready for school workshop
*Having fun together workshop
