Family Support

Raising children is wonderful but can sometimes be really challenging! We know that sometimes families need a little extra support or advice. If you would like to discuss anything or would like some extra encouragement, we are here to help.

Our Family Support Adviser, Alison Greenwood, is also our ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant), who works with children across the school in raising self- esteem and supporting with different social situations or behaviours. We feel that children learn better and are happier in school if their emotional needs are supported and addressed.

Our Family Support Adviser (FSA) can help and offer advice to parents on:

  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Money Management
  • Bedtimes and Routines
  • Managing Behaviour
  • or someone just to talk to as a ‘listening ear’ when needed.

If you would like to discuss anything or ask for support, please just pop into the office or give us a call to speak to Mrs Alison Greenwood and we will do all that we can for you.

  • By phone: 01344 301269
  • By email: agreenwood@jennetts.bonitas.org.uk
  • By making an appointment through the school office

Lovely words. Be kind ❤️

Working parents want kids to go back to school because school closures directly impacts them.

Teachers don’t want schools to open because covid spreading round their school directly impacts them.

NHS staff want a full lockdown because sick covid patients directly impacts them.

Business owners want to carry on as normal because lockdown directly impacts them.

People with physical health problems want everyone to stay socially distant because catching covid could kill them.

People with mental health problems want people to spend time with because isolation could kill them.

Some can’t wait for a vaccine because they believe it will bring back some normality.

Some are terrified of a vaccine because they believe it could harm them.

We are all going through this but none of us are going through the same thing. Some face crippling financial challenges, others face heart break. We don’t all have to agree with what is best because what’s best for us won’t be best for everyone. We don’t have to understand what others are going through. But we do need to stick together and keep loving each other no matter our differences. We need to be mindful when some things go the way we want it to, it could be terrible news to another person. We need to be kind.
