Home School Link Worker

Being a parent/Carer can be a rewarding role, it's also probably one of the hardest jobs you will ever do! 

 My name is Lynda Burgess and I am the Home School Link Worker 

  • I can help with children who are experiencing difficult times or are withdrawn or anxious
  • parents/carers experiencing difficulties with their child's behaviour
  • families who are reacting to change, such as parental separation or bereavement
  • parents/carers whose children are reluctant to attend school or who have been excluded
  • parents/carers who may need support on a wide range of issues or difficulties impacting on       their family life e.g. illness, domestic violence, disability, financial difficulties.
  • I can also support you in making and maintaining links with the school 
  • attending school meetings and appointments with your child
  • signposting to other services and support, help and advice
  • Early Help referrals
