Home School Link Worker

We are fortunate to have a Home School Link Worker, Chris Albrecht, who visits the school once a week. 

The role of the HSLW is:

  • to offer support to pupils, parents and families on a wide variety of issues
  • to help improve attendance and punctuality
  • to promote positive behaviour

Chris can provide one-to-one support and advice, therapeutic sessions for children and families, signposts to other agencies and also support groups for parents and carers.

Who can the HSLW help?

  • Children who are withdrawn or anxious
  • Parents/carers experiencing difficulties in managing their child's behaviour
  • Parents/carers whose children are not attending school or who have been excluded
  • Children and parents/carers who may need support on a wide range of issues, such as parental separation, bereavement, illness or domestic violence.
  • Parents/carers who would like help and advice with filling in forms eg. school admissions, free school meals, special educational needs, housing, benefits etc.
