Family Support

Pendeen School's Family Support Link Worker is  Kathleen. 

Kathleen will be holding monthly meetings at school. You do not need to make an appointment; these sessions are open to any parent or carer in school. 


Family workers provide support for families with children aged 9 months-12 years who are able to give their consent and commit to engage in support. 


Family Workers can help with the following:


-Parenting issues which cannot be resolved by attending a parenting course and when the child's behaviour is seriously impacting the family. 

-Supporting parents to understand their child's behaviour. 

-Family workers can support children with low level anxiety, increasing emotional resilient, recognising and managing their emotions, breavement and family breakdown. 

-Lack of Meal/ Bed time/ daily routines which are impacting on the family, e.f. reduced school attendance or persistent lateness. 

-Debt or housing advice which cannot be support by a visit to the CAB. 


If you feel that a Family worker could help you and your family, you can self refer through the Early Help Hub by accessing or join Kathleen for an advice session in school.
