My name is Martin Richards and I am the Family Support Worker for Pennington C of E Junior School. My role is to support the children and families in our school community.
What does my role involve as Family Support Worker?
As the school’s Family Support Worker, I can provide information and support to families and children to get them the help they feel they may require. I am able to promote and enhance the relationship between home and school, often working alongside the teachers to reach successful outcomes for the children and families. I work in partnership with a wide range of agencies and professionals to deliver support and interventions and represent the school in a variety of settings. I can help support parents where it’s appropriate, with useful strategies and routines. I can offer emotional and social support for children whilst they are in school or signpost you to outside agencies, organisations and professionals if their support or advice is relevant.
