Family Support Worker

Hello, my name is Catherine Boylan and I am the Family Support Worker in school.

 

My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. I can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child's education, behaviour and wellbeing.  I am also here to support parents with issues that may be impacting on their family such as health or debt,

 

Advice and support is confidential, although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school's Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.

 

I may not have all the answers, but hopefully I can help you to work out how to find them!

 

Support for pupils includes:
