Coffee Mornings have moved.......
You can now join me for Afternoon Tea!!
Come and join Mrs Cook's weekly afternoon tea drop ins, every Thursday from 2pm . It's a great opportunity to discuss any issues/parenting concerns you may have as well as meeting other parents over a cuppa!
Every 1/2 term we have a theme to the session, from healthy eating to child safety, inviting in other visitors, such as the school nurse.
I look forward to seeing you there!
What is the role of a family inclusion support officer?
My role is to provide direct support to parents and children. I liaise with parents over queries, offering appropriate advice and support, sometimes just providing that listening ear!
I also offer parent drop ins, which is an opportunity to discuss any issues facing your family and perhaps signposting to external service that could help as well as parenting courses throughout the year.
I often work directly with children who are experiencing emotional or other difficulties with home or school life, including school attendance.

The Hardest Job in the World!
Parenting often feels like the hardest job in the world doesn't it? Oh how we wish that those lovely tiny babies came with a book on what to do! Almost as quickly as you've managed to get to grips with one phase another seems to appear!
Below is a list of websites that can offer much needed support or ideas when the challenges of parenting are upon you.
Family lives are a support charity aiming at providing help in all aspects of family life. They also provide a support helpline on 08088002222
Young minds are the voice for young people's mental health and wellbeing. The website has a section dedicated to parents.
Childnet is dedicated to keeping children safe online. The website gives helpful pointers for parents in how to tackle this ever growing concern.
Another great site to visit for help and guidance with online safety.
