Child and Family Mentor
Hi I'm Sharon Marsh, some of you know me from my previous role as Learning Mentor . I am now focused on pastoral care. I will now be working closely with identified families and their children on specific, bespoke targets related to attendance, children reaching their full potential in school and being ready and able to learn. In addition I am the person who telephones you in the morning if your child is not in school and we have not had a message. I am a trained Thrive practitioner, BTE Lego trained, and committed to supporting the well being and positive mental health of children at the school.
Please have a look at the document below which lists lots of activities to do with your children
Do you or your children enjoy designing and building with Lego? If the answer is yes then why not follow this link and subscribe to get a free Lego magazine sent to you 5 times a year:
Are you worried about a child?
At CPJS we take safeguarding seriously. If you have any worries about the safety of a child, it is important you know who to share them with and what to do: together we are all responsible for the care and welfare of children.
- Are you a parent who needs support with a difficult issue, from your child’s behaviour to a problem related to domestic violence?
- Are you a child who needs to talk to someone about things that are worrying you?
- Do you have concerns about the safety or well-being of another child or think they are at risk of abuse or neglect?
What to do?
1 - Speak to one of our Designated Officers for the Safeguarding of children.
At Chester Park Junior School, these people are Kath Morley, Administration Assistant and Communications Lead, Sharon Marsh, Child & Family Mentor, Claire Woolley Deputy Head and Mike McNama, our Headteacher.
Or if you prefer, you can discuss your worries with your child's class teacher who will be able to talk things through informally, or support you with what to do next.
If you would like to discuss anything which is of a concern, however small, please call into school to speak to us, or contact us via telephone or email:
Tel: 0117 3773365
email: firstname.lastname@example.org , marked confidential and for the attention of either Kath Morley, Sharon Marsh, Claire Bailey or Mike McNama
- Phone the First Response Bristol team on 0117 903 6444
You can make a named or anonymous referral or discuss your concerns about a child. If you are concerned about a child that is not yours you should also contact First Response Bristol.
First Response Bristol gives the right help, in the right place, at the right time. See the attached flyer for more information about the support available through First Response.
