Supporting Families

Supporting Families at Abbeywood

At Abbeywood First School we see the challenges that families face in bringing up children. There may be times when you need extra help and support. If this is the case, please come and talk to us. There are many ways in which we can help. 

We can also help to plan specific support for families in the form of a ‘My Plan’ where we can work together with parents to set out the ways the school and other agencies, and yourself, can work together to achieve the best for your child and family.  

Early help means providing support as soon as a problem begins, at any point in a child’s life, from early years all the way through to teenage years.  

There may be times when you need extra help and support. If this is the case, please get in touch. We will send out a Supporting Families questionnaire to find out more about your concerns and some general background about your child. This means we can be prepared when we arrange the initial meeting. 

Once we have met, we will often send out some initial advice sheets or links to courses that will be useful for parents/carers to do. We may also arrange a meeting with parents/carers to discuss concerns further before agreeing on actions for home and school.  

At Abbeywood First School, Supporting Families Team meet once a week to discuss any parental concerns. This team includes:

Charlotte Hughes.

Alison Kemp.

Support available in Worcestershire.
