I thought it was time to introduce myself. My name is Mary Bull and I have just taken on the role of Family Support Worker, here at Lodge Farm Primary School. I am not new to school as I have worked in many different roles over my 14 years here, the last one being Inclusion Manager, so I am sure you will have seen me around, usually making a lot of noise or dancing at the gate.
I am excited about making this role fit the needs of the parents/carers and children of Lodge Farm. To help me to do this, I am looking for suggestions, for things you would find useful e.g. courses, to help with family life, the chance to meet up with other parents/carers to have a coffee and a chat, to share experiences good and bad or ideas of easy activities that you could do at home with your children. If you have any suggestions, please contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t promise that I will be able to make everything suggested happen, but I will certainly do my best to cover as much as possible.
I also hope to be able to help to bridge the gap between families and organisations. If you need help to fill in a form or to make contact with an organisation, don’t be afraid to ask me. I am based in the Den, where I have an open door policy. If you would like to talk to me, you can ask at the office, and they will get hold of me, or alternatively you could ring or email. If I am not able to talk to you, I will do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible.
I will be keeping this page up to date, adding details of any courses that I find and think could be useful, so please have a look.
I hope that this has given you just a little insight into the ways that I could possibly be of assistance to you and your family.
