Family Support Worker

 

Our Family Support Worker here at Barming Primary School is called Mrs Darby.

 

Mrs Darby's role is to provide pastoral support to parents/carers and help with any issues that you may have in relation to supporting your children, both at home and in school. Mrs Darby works to encourage parental involvement within school, signpost to agencies (where appropriate) and support children in school. Should you have a personal concern or school related issue, then she is here as a listening ear. Mrs Darby has access to a number of agencies who may be able to provide support to you and your family. Any query, large or small that you may require assistance with, Mrs Darby is here to help.

 

Mrs Darby liaises with all school staff, always in the best interests of the children and their families. She works impartially and confidentially and can provide a ‘listening ear’ if you ever need advice or support.
