Welcome to Sue Sparkes' Child and Family Support Information pAGE

Hello I'm Sue smiley I am the Family Support worker in school and I am part of the School Pastoral Team.

  I work closely with class teachers and support with regular school reviews.

I help our children in school by offering them some extra support if needed,  this could be a reassuring chat,  teaching them some positive behaviour skills or sharing some emotional tools and resources which they can use both in school and at home.

I also work with groups of children to help with things like confidence, self-esteem and friendships.

I work closely with our Parents and Carers who may want some advice around using behaviour tools at home.  I deliver a Nurture / Positive Behaviour Support Programme which is on a 1:1 basis and tailored around each Family.

All the support is flexible and confidential – I am happy to have a chat if you are concerned about anything, would like some general advice or need signposting to other services in our local area.

My door is always open!

Top Tips for a successful family reward system

Whole family reward systems encourage family time together and family cooperation.

The Pebble Pot is an example of a whole family reward system

which is fun, colourful, tactile, visual and noisy.

You will need a clear jar and some glass pebbles/marbles. Pasta shapes would work well too.
