Family Support

If you have any any family support concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at  

Hello! My name is Val Goggin and I am the Family Support worker/Attendance Officer in school.

My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. I can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child's education, behaviour and wellbeing. I am also here as someone to talk to if you need it!

I can meet with you at school at a time to suit yourself. Advice and support is confidential, although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school's Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. I may not have all the answers, but hopefully I can help you to work out how to find them!

Support for pupils includes:

  • promoting good attendance and puntuality
  • promoting self-esteem and confidence
  • promoting positive behaviour and positive attitudes to learning
  • providing one-to-one support

Support for families includes:

  • providing information and signposting to other services in the local area
  • assistance in completing paperwork and forms, e.g. housing, special educational needs, school places and benefits
  • attendance and support at school and other agency meetings
  • advice and support in promoting positive behaviour at home


How to get in touch:

I am normally based in school every morning from 8.30am Monday-Thursday and can be available in the afternoons by arrangement.

Please call the school office on 01276 473346 to make an appointment or pop in and I will be happy to see you as soon as I can.

I can also be contacted via the main school email,
