Additional Support for families




What else can the team at Cuxton do for families?


Here are a variety of tasks we can do for families:


  • Act as a link between home and school including making home visits.
  • Offer a range of services to children and families requiring support and information.
  • Help children and families to increase school attendance and minimise absences.
  • Work with children on a 1:1 or small group basis for a variety of reasons.
  • Talk with and support children in school and encourage them to be positive about their future.
  • Support parents to develop and maintain a positive relationship with the school.
  • Mentoring pupils when needed.
  • Arrange Triple  P Parenting programmes when help is needed for parents.
  • Go through the Early Offer of Help paperwork and process to get external agencies involved when support is needed.
  • Attend paediatric appointments to support families when necessary.
  • Transition programmes across the school and also transfer to secondary/grammar schools for any child that may need the support.
  • Make referrals to external agencies to support children and families and liaise with the professionals.


What concerns do we deal with?


We am here to support children and families/carers with a wide range of issues and concerns.  A few examples have been listed below:


  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Anger Management
  • Emotional First Aid
  • Relationship issues
  • Home circumstances
  • Home-School relationships
  • Behavioural problems


We know children achieve more when both home and school are working in partnership to support the child’s development.  Our aim is to encourage and maintain a strong, positive partnership between home and school.  I help with many worries or concerns our parents or children may have, however large or small.


We all have days when we worry about things; we can’t pay the mortgage, having trouble at work, family illness etc. These are big worries.  When children have issues and fall out with their friends, other children are being nasty, or there is an upset at home, these can be just as big worries for them. This is where we can help.  We can offer advice, someone to talk things over with, someone to listen, or someone to simply be there when you need it.


We are not saying we have all the answers!  But we may be able to get the help that is needed for families.  If you have any concerns however minor they may seem then please come and see the team and we can help you access the support you need .
