My name is Elliot Mather and I work within the Pastoral Team here at Shakespeare Primary School. My role is Family Support Manager, and I am also one of 7 Safeguarding Leads within school. I work alongside Heather Hay, our Family Support Assistant, who is also one of our Safeguarding Leads.
Our role in school is to provide support, advice and information to families in our school community. We can help with any worries or questions you may have in relation to your child’s behaviour, development and wellbeing, as well as considering ways to support any personal circumstances that may be impacting you or your child/ren.
We are also here as someone to talk to if you need it. We can provide support over the phone, but where possible we always prefer a face to face meeting and a nice cup of tea!
Support we offer includes:
Our other duties include:-
Advice and support is confidential and consent driven, although any concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school’s safeguarding and child protection procedures.
We are both in school daily, and you can find us on the gates in a morning and after school, or you can call the school office on 01253 872887 to make an appointment.
We may not have all the answers, but we work closely with a range of specialist services that can provide targeted support where more specific needs have been identified.
