'I never thought he would
ever do as well as he has done. It's wonderful and he was so excited when he realised he had done so well.'

Family Worker Support

PurslowMy role is to provide advice, support and guidance to the families and children at Wenlock Junior School.

At Wenlock our families are important to us and we want you to be happy and thriving. We understand however, that difficulties can come to all of us at some point or another, and if this should happen then we want to do all that we can to help so as your children are able to learn and achieve their full potential.

Working in partnership with the school I am here to support with any issues/difficulties that you may be facing. If you have anything that you need help with, whether it be housing, debt, benefits, behaviour management, parent child relationship difficulties or even help completing forms, then please just come to see me.

Support can be carried out in lots of ways, from one to one work to group information sessions. Signposting to outside agencies can also be a part of the support process and ensures that you receive the specialist support you may need.

Wenlock is fortunate enough to have a purpose built family room which is a friendly and warm space and easily accessible to parents and carers at the front of the school. Parents and carers are always welcome to 'pop in' and no appointment is needed. The family room door is always open whether it is help you need or just a friendly chat, you are welcome anytime!

Some activities that take place in the family room:

  • Family learning
  • Workshops on topics of interest, such as healthy eating, keeping children safe on the internet, money management
  • Coffee mornings/afternoons – giving you a chance to meet other parents, and meet professionals who work with us in supporting your children
  • Art and craft groups
  • Cooking clubs
  • ICT Drop-in
  • Breakfast clubs
  • SEN coffee information sessions
  • Play Zone – a club for dads, male carers and children
  • Careers guidance sessions
  • Family fun activities
  • Games library
  • Transition sessions

If there is anything that you need support or advice with you can contact me by calling in to the family room or phoning 01582 730624. I can also be found on the playground at the start of most school days. Alternatively you can leave a message with the school office.
