Nurture and Wellbeing Manager


We are delighted to have Francesca as our Nurture and Wellbeing Manager. She supports children and families for a wide range of reasons. She also co-ordinates our nurture groups and works hard to keep all our children happy, healthy and safe.  Nurture groups run throughout the year with the aim of offering extra support to children who are struggling in certain areas, for example, with their choices, self-confidence or friendships.  The groups are a great way to address concerns before they become larger issues.  Nurture groups give an extra boost when children need it.  Francesca and her Nurture TA (Mrs Swindon) also offer 1:1 support for children who need it.

Francesca says, “I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be part of Hady Primary School. It is, without a doubt, the most nurturing school you can find.  All the staff here understand that you need to feel secure and well cared for before you can begin to learn.  We work flexibly to make sure this happens.

I have worked with parents and carers for a huge variety of reasons. Some examples are: difficulty with routines and boundaries at home, maintaining a work-life balance, dealing with bereavement, domestic violence, parental separation, financial pressure or homelessness. Feel free to make contact with me and, if I can’t help, I’ll try my absolute best to find someone who can.”

Francesca works with families privately and discreetly and meets as regularly as is needed in school. Francesca is another home-school link and is very happy to talk to you about home or school issues.

See the link below that clarifies our new Early Help Offer, Francesca’s role and how we as a school can support your child’s and family’s needs.

Please feel free to contact her at school or on her mobile: 07460 765157. She works Monday to Wednesday and through most school holidays.

We take safeguarding very seriously at Hady Primary School. If you are concerned that a child is suffering or is at risk of significant harm please contact Call Derbyshire on tel: 01629 533190 immediately.


Due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to offer our traditional open morning for prospective parents and pupils of our Reception class for September 2021. Instead, we have put together a virtual tour and introduction to our school and our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. It is posted under our Early Years Foundation Stage page on the website, which can be found under the 'Our School' tab.

We are also hosting a virtual Question and Answer session for prospective parents via Google Meet. The meeting will be held at 2:30pm on Thursday, 12th November and can be accessed via this link: meet.google.com/abi-hiqp-vfp
