At King's Wood, we know parenting can offer challenges; we also realise that from time to time life can be difficult.
We really value opportunities to work in partnership with families and agencies when needs arise, to support parents so that children are in the best possible position to achieve.
Our Family Liaison Manager, Erika Searle, coordinates this support, working closely with the child and their family. She also works closely with health, social care, adult learning and housing to name a few agencies!
Some examples of support offered include:
Referral to the Family Support Service
Support with filling in forms
Finding ways to enable parents to engage
Working with individual families on specific issues
PAFT (Parents as First Teachers) - click here for further information
Organising Adult Learning classes
Organising parent workshops
This is by no means the full extent of support offered. The provision is flexible and dynamic - we seek to find ways of helping individual parents and families and will tailor the support to their needs as far as possible.
Should you feel that you are encountering difficulties which are negatively impacting on your child's education, please get in contact through the school office.
