Family Support

Dear Parents and Carers,

My name is Rebecca Donaghey and my role is Family Support Worker at Marlborough School. My aim is to work with parents and carers in a supportive role. I am available to support through telephone advice, 1-1 appointments and I am also able to attend multi- agency meetings. I can also offer support with referrals to appropriate agencies and I am available to help with form filling and application forms if required.

As the family support worker I offer practical help and emotional support to families. You are able to contact me directly via school reception to arrange a meeting or class teachers can make a referral to me requesting support for your family.  Please be aware I work part time, Monday- Wednesday.

I also hold regular coffee mornings, this is a great opportunity for parents to meet, chat and share experiences. Coffee mornings are held on a monthly basis and every parent and carer is welcome. Throughout the year we invite representatives from different agencies and organisations to provide useful information to parents and carers about services that may be available to them. School staff will also run workshops throughout the year.

Please look out for further information about the coffee mornings in the school newsletters or school calendar.

Further details about coffee mornings and parent workshops that have been held this academic year can be found here.

My work with parents is confidential and I hope to build a trusting relationship with all parents and carers, however should I have any concerns about any child’s welfare I have a duty to safeguard the welfare of all children according to Marlborough’s Child Protection Policy.

If you would like to arrange a meeting with me, please don’t hesitate to call on 0208 300 6896.
