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.
Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
