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.
We are finally approaching a much-anticipated time, with life slowly re-gaining the normality that we have missed over the past year! At Avenue we have strived to ensure that school is a safe environment complying with all government guidelines, and we will continue to do so during the coming months as we reach the end of the school year. Although for many this is an exciting time it is also completely understandable to be feeling concerns surrounding the new normality that we face and adjusting back into society. We will continue to ensure that we remain conscious of all our children’s feelings and emotions at a time that has been like no other and will continue to do 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-
