Family Support

Working to Support our Children and Families


As a school, we are proud to be able to offer a wide range of support to our families.  We operate an open-door policy, making staff available to meet with parents before and after school each day to discuss any concerns or issues that they may have.


Where there are more complex concerns, the school has four Designated Senior People, all of whom have had specialist training to work with families to ensure that the best outcomes are reached for every child.  Mr Maher is the lead for this and is supported by Miss Ormonde, Mrs Bordoley and Mrs Rawson.  All staff receive regular training and updates to support them in this role also.


Where children are identified as needing extra help in a certain area, the school will work to ensure that they get this help in a timely manner.  This may be through extra work with our Learning Mentor, through in-class support, or from external professionals such as counsellors.


Mrs Bordoley also works with families to provide support and advice and will also work with the school’s Family Worker, Judi Hardy, where needed.  See the links below for further information on Judi’s role.


Hertfordshire are also able to offer support through the Families First Portal, which is a directory of support services available within the county.  Again, please follow the link below for more information.
