Family Support

Marina Shaftoe, our Family Support Worker, is school based and works as an integral part of the pastoral care team.  Her role is to support children in our school by assisting their families based on their needs, and she has experience in being able to respond creatively and flexibly.

Marina will:

  1. Work with pupils experiencing social emotional and behavioural difficulties and/or at risk of social exclusion/disaffection and their families so they can participate fully in home and school activities in order to achieve their full potential
  2. Promote good attendance of pupils at school to enable them to learn effectively
  3. Work with families, accessing resources, to help increase their involvement in the education and welfare of their children
  4. Provide pastoral care to pupils to ensure their wellbeing within the school.

Marina works on Thursdays and Fridays only, so please contact the school office on 020 8699 8537 if you would like to make an appointment to see her.
