At East Ward Community Primary School we want to make sure that children are happy, secure and successful. Sometimes some children or their families need extra help to make sure of this. There are a team of adults in school who organise and provide additional support for parents, carers and children.
Miss Coffey, Mrs Moss, Miss Sheridan and Mrs Golding work with children in and out of class who are having difficulties with behaviour and/or learning or need emotional support. They also run groups for children to help them cope with change and challenging situations such as transition to another class or secondary school.
Miss Coffey works closely with the teachers to track your child’s progress in school and organise extra support if your child is falling behind. This support may be provided by adults in school or specialists from outside of school such as Speech and Language Therapists. If you think your child may need additional support, or you are worried about your child’s progress, please talk to the class teacher or Miss Coffey.
There will always be someone available at the beginning and end of the day so please talk to them directly if you wish to discuss your child.
