Hello my name is Kate Shaw - As Wellbeing Lead for children and families I work as part of our Inclusion Team supporting children, parents and carers.

Our aim at St Joseph's is to support families and encourage children to enjoy school and feel happy and secure.

I am able to provide support for children and carers. I am also a link between home and school, and an ongoing contact as children move from school to school.

During term time, we work in partnership with parents and carers, school, and other agencies to support families - aiming to resolve current issues and prevent future difficulties.

 

I can help....

Children who are experiencing difficult times or who are withdrawn and anxious.

Parents or carers experiencing difficulties with their children's behaviour.

Families who are reacting to change, such as parental separation or bereavement.

Parents and carers whose children are reluctant to attend school or have been excluded.

Parents or carers who may need support on a wide range of issues or difficulties impacting on their family life e.g. illness, domestic violence, disability or financial difficulties.

 

I can also...

Help with links between you and school.

Support you at school meetings.

Help you towards other sources of help, advice and support.

Provide information on support groups for parents and carers.

Work closely with the Inclusion Lead to support wider issues.

 

 

Please contact me via the school office or via email at kshaw@stjosephs.rbksch.org

 

With your consent we will explore the difficulties your child or family is experiencing and try to find the best way forward together.
