Lucy McGough - Family Support Lead


As family support lead I am here to support your child(ren) by working alongside you during their time at Shakespeare Primary School. My role is to help your child(ren) be happy and safe both in school and at home.   I am here to help the family as a whole with any support needed because we know how important ours and our children’s mental health is.   I also support children through their transition as they move through the school and leave for high school.


My role in school is to ensure that your child(ren) feels happy and safe in school, at home and in the virtual world.  I give annual talks to all the children about Anti-Bullying Week and Online Safety Day where we talk about how to have fun, be kind and stay safe.   I see children on a 1:1 basis or in a group to discuss any friendship difficulties, any worries that they may have and offer a safe space for them to be listened to.


Our anti-bullying message is always tell, tell, tell because without school knowing we can’t help but what we can do is put a stop to the bullying and support both the child face bullying with confidence and the bully to understand how their actions have affected others.


Please encourage your child(ren) to talk an adult they trust, either at home or in school. At school we have worry boxes outside your child’s classroom, these are checked daily by myself and I will have a chat with your child(ren) to help with whatever the issue may be.


I am here to help you and your child/children make the most of your time at Shakespeare Primary School.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind. I have placed lots of motivational quotes and helpful reminders of how to be a good friend around school. You can use these as a good conversation starter to get your child(ren) to talk about their feelings.
