Support for families
 
Parenting is not an easy job and, at times things can get tough. Like every other parent, you want what is best for your child.

At Whitemoor we have a Parent Support Adviser (PSA) who is here to help deal with any worries or concerns that you may have as a parent. A Parent Support Adviser works closely with families to support school staff and external agencies in partnership with families.Helping parents to feel comfortable about coming into school and participating in their children's learning.

Our Parent Support Adviser can offer you:

  • One to one support
  • Offer support and advice
  • Provide information about other relevant services in the area
  • Offer opportunities to attend parenting groups and to learn together.

Trauma Informed School / Pupil Behaviour and Welfare
 
We want all the children in our community to flourish, so we have introduced The Trauma Informed School Approach in order to support their emotional and social development.  Our aim is to help your children feel happy and secure, able to enjoy friendships, relate well to others and be ready and able to learn.
 
We are fortunate to have a Behaviour and Welfare teaching assistant working at Whitemoor once a week to support those children who have specific emotional needs, her name is Mrs Alison Lowry.
 
We also participate in wider programmes with charities such as the NSPCC to support pupils with their relationships education.
