Please meet Sarah Lettis, our school Family Support Worker.  She works full time and is based on the school site.

                                     

Hello,

I'm Sarah the Family Support Worker for Southfield School. I have worked at Southfield for 9 and a half years; starting as a Teaching Assistant, then a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, a governor and now Family Support Worker.

I have completed various training over the years, so have a wide knowledge and experience in many areas of the school.

I am a mother of 2 children, so can understand some of the challenges that parenthood throws your way and the difficulty it can sometimes cause. I also have some personal experience of life issues such as bereavement, bullying, benefits and housing.

As a family support worker I can help you with many areas of home and school life. These can include;

*attendance 

*housing/finances/benefits

*bereavement/loss

*family/relationship issues

*new starts/transition/settling in

*parenting skills

*training/workshops

*mental/physical health issues

*signposting you to other helpful services

*helping parents to become more involved in school life

 

As a family support worker I will;

*always listen

*be non-judgmental

*be discreet

*help you to the best of my abilities

*always be honest

*be supportive

 

I look forward to working with you and your family throughout your time at Southfield School.
