Family Support

Working in partnership with our families is key to our success. We recognise that some families need and want more support than others at different times, whether this be for the children in school or the whole family.

Mr McDonald, our Safeguarding and Pastoral Leader provides a vital link between home and school, offering bespoke 1-1, or group work support around issues relating to behaviours, attendance and safeguarding.

He has a vast knowledge of Safeguarding and has worked in this area since 2002 in a variety of roles, the most recent working in Children’s Services as a Targeted Family Support Worker.

He supports families who may be involved with Children’s Services or other agencies. Mr McDonald can be an advocate to support them at multi-agency meetings ensuring the best possible outcomes for our families. 

We are able to sign-post children and families to other agencies for support, including in-house expertise such as Play Therapy, Restorative Justice, MyStar and Mindfulness.
