Hello, I’m Georgia Edwards the Family Support Worker. My role is to provide practical and emotional support, offering advice and information to families who may be experiencing short- or long-term difficulties and to help with any concerns you may have regarding your child’s wellbeing, behaviour or education. During these uncertain times it is important to remain conscious and accepting of our own wellbeing as well as our children’s, and therefore more important than ever to reach out if anyone in your family is struggling in any way.
It’s been great to see so many happy faces returning to school for another exciting year ahead, I am so pleased to see how well the children have settled into their new year groups. After a long period of uncertainty and facing the difficulties that the pandemic threw at us all, we are hopeful at Avenue that this year the children can continue to remain in school in a happy, safe environment.
This year I will continue to ensure that I remain conscious of all the children’s feelings and emotions, with a focus on promoting positivity and mindfulness following a time in our little one’s lives that was like no other. At Avenue we will continue to do all we can to provide a nurturing space for children in school to talk about their feelings and know that all emotions are welcome and listened to. Please encourage your children to talk to a member of staff who they trust about their feelings, and as always, I welcome any of you to reach out to me for further support and guidance.
I can be contacted via the school office or email-
