Family Support

Rachel Ealey-Bennett & Sally Moore are our Safeguarding and Welfare Leads

They both have a diverse range of professional skills to support children, young people and families.

The aim of their work is:

  • To enable children to access and benefit from the best educational opportunities by supporting parents, carers and families with their individual needs
  • Promote positive links between the home, school, local organisations and agencies so that families receive the best care and support that is available to them

They can offer support with:


Did you have a tough time at school and do teachers still scare you? Our childhood experiences often stick with us and inhibit how we interact with others in the present day.  If you have a problem and you are not sure how to talk to school about it or you would like to speak to someone in confidence, then they are willing to listen and can offer you support


Rachel & Sally have information on organisations that can support families through difficult times such as bereavement, separation, unemployment and illness.


No one has ever claimed to be the perfect parent.  It is a tough job and is not easy all of the time. If your child is presenting you with some difficult behaviour then please do not suffer in silence. Support is out there for you.


This is a tricky time for children. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to ask for help. They can help with both primary and secondary school in order to help you and your child move on smoothly.


Rachel & Sally have information on benefits, helpful local charities, accessible grants and organisations that can help families on a low income.

If you feel you and your family would benefit from support, please feel free to pop into school office and leave your contact details. 

You may find us seeking consent for Rachel or Sally to work with your child at school.  They run a number of interventions to support children with their emotional and social development including……….
