I would like to introduce you to the new Parent Link Worker.
Michelle Dowling will be working at St Martin De Porres on a Thursday and her role is to support families. Our school link worker will provide a vital link between home and school, and an on-going contact as children move from school to school.
The PSLW can help with the following:
- Children who are experiencing difficult times or are withdrawn or anxious;
- Parents/carers experiencing difficulties with their child’s behaviour;
- Families who are reacting to change, such as parental separation or bereavement;
- Parent/carers whose children are reluctant to attend school or have been excluded;
- Parents/carers who may need support on a wide range of issues or difficulties impacting on their family life eg., illness, domestic violence, disability, financial difficulties.
The PSLW can also:
- Help with links between home and school;
- Support parents/carers at school meetings;
- Help parents/carers find their way through the education system;
- Guide parents/carers towards other sources of help, advice and support;
- Provide information on support groups for parents/carers.
