Who Are We?
I work with referred children on a 1:1 basis and in small groups to identify and remove barriers to learning. I work closely with a range of outside agencies to support families to improve the outcomes for their children. I manage attendance at school, support transition to secondary school and I am a Designated Child Protection Officer.

- Improving attendance and punctuality.
