Our Home School Link Worker is Jill Beaumont.

Jill’s aim is to support families and encourage all young people to enjoy school and feel happy and secure. She can help:

  • Young people who are experiencing difficult times or who are withdrawn or anxious 
  • Parents/carers experiencing difficulties with their child’s behaviour
  • Families who are reacting to change, such as parental separation or bereavement
  • Parents/carers whose children are reluctant to attend school or who have been excluded
  • Parents/carers who may need support on a wide range of issues or difficulties impacting on their family life e.g. illness, domestic violence, disability, financial difficulties

She can also:

  • Support you at school meetings 
  • Help you find your way through the education system
  • Guide you towards other sources of help, advice and support 
  • Provide information on support groups for parents/carers.

Parents/carers and pupils can ask for Jill’s involvement at any time.   She will explore the challenges being faced, and together try to find the best way forward.
