Students spend 55% of their year in school but the remaining 45% at home; therefore the influence of home on a child’s learning and development is enormous. As such, supporting parents/carers to enable them to provide the best possible care for their children is vital.

Are you an excellent champion for all,
who wants to make a difference to all students and families?
Are you a passionate practitioner with a genuine commitment to helping others? 

If so we’d love to hear from you.

Jennett’s Park CE Primary School is a wonderful caring and supportive school within a distinctive Christian ethos. We highly recommend visiting our school as once you visit you will love it as much as we do.

We are looking to recruit a Family Support Worker to establish and foster good relationships with all parents/carers of pupils within school. You will be pro-active in identifying needs in order to support children and families, develop and run effective parent coffee mornings/workshops and will encourage parental involvement in the school and its activities. With previous experience of working with pupils with special needs and families, you will have the ability to deal with sensitive issues with tact and diplomacy and will provide support to enable effective parenting. By supporting inclusive practice and focussing on preventative and early intervention activities, you will build relationships with vulnerable and ‘yet to be reached’ children. You will keep up to date with and maintain knowledge of the range of agencies and services available locally that parents might be signposted to and will actively promote the family support services provided by Children’s Services, Social Care, neighbouring LA partners etc.
