Our philosophy as family workers here at Wigmore is to strive towards achieving positive outcomes for all children and families. We work in partnership with school staff and partner agencies such as health, education psychology, early help team, adult learning and charities to facilitate, enhance and support parental involvement in all aspects of school life and your children’s learning journey.
"The Family Support Work enables the team to help and support families, often in times of great difficulty and chaos, change and transition, for as long as they need us.” Unlike many services aimed at supporting families, we have no time limit. Pro-active work with parents is much more effective than reactive work with children.
Our support to families is extremely varied and is tailored towards what parents have asked for and what we can realistically provide. Support is therefore, appropriate and representative.
Currently, we have a flourishing coffee morning, a Sustrans and Active Luton health walk for mental health and wellbeing, family learning in conjunction with Luton Adult Community learning, homework support, a wellbeing group and timeslots throughout the week for 1-1 advice/guidance/emotional support and professional meetings with partner agencies.
We also accompany teachers on home visit inductions,this is an opportunity to have a chat, talk about any potential concerns/questions and to explore our role in more depth. Please take the time to have a look at our newsletters and come and see us to talk about what you might like to see running in the Family Room. We operate an open door policy from 8.30am-4.30pm.
