Family Support Worker


My name is Vicky Shallaker and I am the Family Support Worker in school.  My role is to provide support, advice and information to families within the school community.  I can support with advice and services to support you and your family.  

I can meet with you at home or in school at a time to suit you.  You can make an appointment at the main school office.  I may not have all the answers but can certainly help you to find them.

I am also able to refer children and families to other services where appropriate.  For example, the Early Help Offer in Manchester.
