Hello, I’m Georgia Edwards the Family Support Worker. My role is to provide practical and emotional support, offering advice and information to families who may be experiencing short- or long-term difficulties and to help with any concerns you may have regarding your child’s wellbeing, behaviour or education. During these uncertain times it is important to remain conscious and accepting of our own wellbeing as well as our children’s, and therefore more important than ever to reach out if anyone in your family is struggling in any way.
As we approach the time for all children to return to school on the 8th March it is understandable for parents and children to be feeling a range of emotions. For many this is an exciting hopeful time, whilst for some there may be feelings of anxiety and concern. For the past year at Avenue we have strived to ensure that school is a safe environment complying with all government guidelines. We have also ensured we are continually conscious of all our children’s feelings and emotions at a time that has been like no other and are doing all we can to provide a nurturing space for children in school to talk about their feelings and know that all emotions are welcome and listened to. Please encourage your children to talk to a member of staff who they trust about their feelings, and as always, I welcome any of you to reach out to myself for further support and guidance.
I can be contacted via the school office or email-
