Meet Our Family Support Worker

My name is Vicky Shallaker and I am the Family Support Worker in school. My role is to provide information, advice and guidance to families within the school community. Please reach out if you feel that you and your family could benefit from my support, or referral to external services.

To make an appointment, please get in touch with the School Office. I can meet with you at home or in school at a time that suits you. I may not have all the answers, but I can certainly help you to find them.

Supporting pupils includes:

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

Supporting families includes:

  • Providing information and signposting to other services in the local area
  • Liaising with a range of external services such as Early Help, housing, charities, etc.
  • Advice and support in promoting positive behaviour at home
  • Guidance with career and personal development, plus access to training and workshops held within school and the wider community
