Family Support Advisor

Family Support Advisor

My name is Amanda Wright and I am the Family Support Worker at Shinfield Infant and Nursery School. I lead the nurture provision   within school, working with the children who have been identified as needing additional nurture support either by their teacher or by a family member. This might be in a small group or 1:1 depending on the need.

I aim to develop good relationships with the families of the children in our school, working in partnership with them to secure positive outcomes in terms of well-being, attainment and life chances of the child. I support families with information, advice and guidance in a confidential, supportive environment.

I work alongside families to help to develop their confidence and to promote empowerment, independence and proactive parenting skills

I am in school every morning as a Year 2 Teaching Assistant, my Nurture and FSW role is timetabled for the afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
