My role is to support the well-being of our Primary age students, alongside our teaching staff.

I will often be the person who liaises with the different agencies such as health and social care who also support our pupils and their families

I support families by:

* helping parents/carers complete paperwork such as disability benefits, grant applications etc.

* attending meetings with outside agencies and feed back to school staff about how we can best support children.

* monitoring school attendance and support families to improve attendance

* promoting children’s wellbeing.

* liaising with the Senior Leadership Team and reporting to Governors on student welfare issues.

I am also the link with ‘Families of Woodfield’, a group for parents and carers of children at Woodfield School. Find out more about the group here:

Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online. And the good news is parental controls are really easy to set up
