Family Support Manager
Holly Grove – A Family Affair!
Holly Grove is keen on maintaining and improving links with its families by raising the profile of the Family Support Team, this has been highlighted by the school twice achieving the ‘Leading Parent Partnership Award’. The Family Support Manager formerly the Family Liaison Officer, Nick Barrett manages the small team which aims to offer holistic support to all our families in order to achieve the best results possible for all our children. Nick who has worked at the school for over 20 years is ably supported by Katrina Meager, who knows how important it is to have a strong support system for her family as her daughter attends Holly Grove and she is keen to use the experiences she has faced, with other parents. They share a warm and welcoming Office which they use to meet confidentially with parents. Shagufta has recently joined the team to provide bilingual support and has proved to be a wonderful asset, meaning we are able to reach out and support more families.
Teaching our children to manage their own behaviour is a key element of removing barriers to learning and the team is keen to share the strategies introduced at school to be used consistently at home. This is only one area of many that we can help with, we have previously supported families with funding applications, attending appointments, filling in forms and organising respite care to name but a few. If you feel the team could help you in any way then please contact Nick or Katrina using one of the options below.
