INCo and Family Support Worker

Hello! My name is Lyanne Armstrong and I am the Family Support Worker in school.

My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. I can help you with any worries that may arise in relation to your child's education, behaviour and wellbeing. I am also here as someone to talk to if you need some support.

I can meet with you at home or in school at a time to suit yourself. Advice and support are confidential although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school's Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. I may not have all the answers, but hopefully I can help you to work out how to find them!

Support for pupils includes:

Promoting good attendance and punctuality
Promoting self-esteem and confidence
Promoting positive behaviour and positive attitudes to learning
Providing one-to-one support

​Support for families includes:

Providing information and signposting to other services in the local area liaising with a range of external services such as Housing and Social Care Support and guidance in completing paperwork and forms e.g.

Special Educational Needs, school places and benefits
Attendance and support at school and other agency meetings
Advice and support in promoting positive behaviour at home
Guidance with career and personal development and access to training and workshops in school

Feel free to contact me via the school office on 01752 706360.

The success of all our children depends to a large extent on the partnership between home and our academy. Every child needs our joint support in order for them to achieve their potential.
