‘Having a Family Support Worker based in my school has enabled my staff to form a bridge between home and school to support children and their families who are in need.
Staff members know there is a knowledgeable experienced
professional working in school who can signpost parents to agencies for support or visit their home to help them create solutions to their children's behaviour together. We wouldn't be without her and my families have benefited greatly from having her on board - meaning my teachers can spend their time teaching. ‘
