Thank you for visiting our web page which is designed to help and support you on the roller-coaster ride that is parenting! You might just have one child or you may have 5 or 6 children, but no matter how experienced or new you are to the role, and to Southwark school, your child is unique and no two journeys will ever be the same. Through this web page we want you to know just what support we can offer in school under our 'safeguarding umbrella' and suggest some helpful information which may be of use to you when you get to a bump in the road!
What Support Can Be Offered In School?
There are a number of support services we can offer in school. Some of this support can include supporting the emotional wellbeing of both you and your child for example if something is happening at home we can offer them an outlet with a specialised team to talk to and share their worries.
We can give support and advice on diet and nutrition or sleep worries. This might involve making referrals to other support agencies such as health visitors or school nurses to guide you through these issues.
We have a number of opportunities to speak about behaviour specialist support, even if the behaviour is something that is happening just at home and does not transfer into school, we have a number of strategies and interventions we can offer you.
We can also support with the Department of Work and Pensions, Bereavement Support, Drug and Alcohol Service Support, Debt and Housing Issues.
Now you are part of school all this extra ‘hub’ of support is available and everything discussed and offered is treated in the strictest of confidence. We will only share details when we have your permission and even then it will be on a need to know basis and be around the referral process in case we needed to invite other agencies such as health visitors or councillors into your life to support you.
The chart below shows some of the other areas of support we can offer at school.
