Family Support at Rokeby
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
About the MASH
People in Warwickshire are safeguarded from harm, receiving the services they need, at the right time, effectively and efficiently. The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is a partnership between Warwickshire County Council, Warwickshire Police, National Health Service (NHS) and other key partner agencies working together to safeguard children, young people and adults.
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.
Within the MASH, information from different agencies will be collated and used to decide what action to take. As a result, the agencies will be able to act quickly in a co-ordinated and consistent way, ensuring that children and adults are kept safe. The MASH will involve representatives from the Warwickshire County Council Social Services, Police, Health, Probation and other key agencies working together in the same location. There are also links to other key services and agencies.
Food Bank Vouchers
"We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK."
We can offer Food Bank Vouchers for families who may need them. Please come to the office and ask for Mrs James, Mrs Pinks or Mrs Evans.
