'Learning together to make a difference'

Home-School Support Worker (HSSW)

Many families face challenging periods or a range of difficulties which often fall outside of their control and may be in need of support to overcome barriers to education and help their child have full access to opportunities.

When could I contact the HSSW?

  • to talk through family difficulties or situations which are beyond your control
  • to think about and plan to overcome barriers to education
  • for sign-posting and referrals to other organisations and community groups
  • for advice around parenting or setting good routines
  • when liaising with other school staff
  • for support with family budget setting and financial support services
  • to find networking opportunities with other families and parents
  • to talk about attendance issues and possible solutions
  • to talk about mental health support and accessing relevant services
  • for advice and guidance contacting external support services and agencies

and much more!

Please leave your contact details (email and phone number) with a brief message and the HSSW will get back to you. Please note that she works part time (three days per week) so it may take a day or two for you to receive a reply.
