Ashley Read Family Support Worker
Hello! My name is Ashley Read and I am the Family Support Worker in School.
My role within school is to provide support, guidance, advice and information to pupils and families in our school community. I am here to help you with any concerns you may have regarding your child’s education, behaviour and well-being.
I am here as someone to talk to, and someone who will listen to your worries. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be supporting children with SEN difficulties. I can meet with you in school or come to your house at a time that suits you. Advice and support is confidential, any safeguarding concerns related to children will be dealt with according to our school policy.
I may not have all the answers but hopefully together we can find them.
