Family Worker

  • Mrs Katy Dow

    Family Support Worker

    Hello. I would like to introduce myself as your new 'Family Support Worker', please feel free to come and say hi.

 
  • Would you like to talk to someone but feel worried about when is best in the busy school environment?
  • Are you concerned about your child's behaviour, learning or progression in school, or at home?
  • Are you concerned that there are uncontrollable circumstances that may be having a negative effect on your family?

    If the answer is yes, then your 'Family Support Worker' is here to help. I am available Monday to Friday from 8.45 am to support you in your families' journey.

How do I request a face to face contact? Just pop into reception and ask for a 'Family Support Worker' contact form where you can request a suitable time and day to meet. Alternatively you can call the school on 01752 365250 and a contact form can be completed over the phone, or you can email me at k.dow@discoverymat.co.uk

Will I have to meet with the Family Worker often if I complete a contact form? No. You are in charge of the support you receive. The support is tailored to your wants and needs, placing your children at the forefront.

Will my information be shared? In order to fully support you and your family there will be times when I will need to share information. You will be asked to provide consent for information to be shared prior to support starting. Information would be shared with School Staff, and external agencies on an 'as required' basis. If there were to be any concerns around your safety or a member of the family, then I would have a duty to share information with the appropriate agencies, with, or without your consent.

Will I have sight of what is stored about me? Yes. After any face to face meeting, notes will be put onto a 'Communication Log Sheet' where you will receive a copy of points discussed and actions for me and you.

I very much look forward to getting to know you and your family.

Katy Dow
