Welcome to Rokeby Primary School's Student and Family Support Team. Our main focus, in our family support role, is to work with and support our pupils and their families to achieve a positive outcome for all.
Mrs Pinks is the Senior Family Support Worker at Rokeby Primary School and has been in this post for 4 years. She is fully trained in the Early Help process, formally known as CAF (Common Assessment Framework). She is available via email and is in school on Fridays. If you need any support for yourself, children or family then please don't hesitate to contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Hopkin is also fully trained in the Early Help process and is also our Nurture lead. Mrs Hopkin is in school everyday and is also available for you to approach regarding support for you, your child or family.
Early Help provides help for children, parents and families who need support in any area of everyday life, such as family separations, bereavement, attendance, housing and even homework.
We also offer parenting courses through Triple P, which many of our parents have successfully used in the past. Please contact Mrs Pinks or Mrs Evans for more information.
Mrs Evans is also our attendance officer and supports families with getting their children to school everyday and on time.
Warwickshire Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub
The MASH will deal with new safeguarding concerns, where someone is concerned about the safety or well-being of a child or adult, or thinks they might be at risk of harm. For example, a teacher may believe that one of their pupils is at risk of harm at home, or a doctor may think an older person is being neglected.

That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis.
