Home School Link Worker

As part of our provision at Middle Barton we have a Home School Link Worker (HSL) for two afternoons a week. Home School Link Workers can provide advice and information to parents and carers as well as supporting children and young people in dealing with temporary or longer term problems - such as children who are anxious or withdrawn, behaviour, bereavement, parental separation, illness and domestic abuse. They work closely with both schools and families and are able to link with a wide range of other agencies and sources of support and advice.

Types of support available:

Ms barwell is a link between home and school and will be able to offer support such as:

  • helping with links between you and school and guide you through the education system.

  • supporting you at school meetings.

  • guiding you to local parenting courses and family learning.

  • supporting families going through change such as parental separation or bereavement.

  • helping to involve and support you with your child’s learning.

  • helping families where children are reluctant to come to school or have been excluded.

  • giving you practical support with form filling and the Early Help Assessment (EHA) process.

  • accompanying parents and carers to meetings e.g. health and social care.

  • providing a link with the SENCo and support families with SEN issues.

  • providing links to agencies which offer support in areas including chronic illness, domestic abuse, alcohol and drug addiction, housing, social care and debt.
