Olga school believe that building strong, trusting relationships between families and school will ensure that your children will be happy, enjoy learning and achieve their best.

This is a message from our new Family Support workers, Shabana Begum and Nazia Ahmed.

We understand that sometimes families experience difficulties which can place stress on home and school life. We are here to listen and support families and work in a non-judgmental way.

·         School induction / getting involved in school life

·         Family relationship problems

·         Parenting and building positive relationships with children

·         Support with children’s learning

·         Courses and workshops in school

·         Attendance and punctuality

·         Children’s behaviour

·         Referrals to TH agencies and help completing forms 

·         Support for meetings

·         Training, education and employment opportunities

·         Health, well-being and emotional issues

·         Housing and financial worries

·         School transitions (including online applications/transition to secondary schools)

·         Home visits by appointment 

We will be in school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will be organising some informal coffee mornings, please pop in to say hello.
