Upcoming Diary Dates
Every parent and carer wants the best for their child and we know that asking for help can be very difficult. This is why The Waterloo School feels that there is a need for a Wellbeing Manager.
A Wellbeing Manager is someone who parents and carers can talk to without feeling that they are being judged.
A Wellbeing manager is someone who will listen to you and offer guidance. Also to help you identify any out of school agencies that could help you and support your family.
Support for children and families:
Many children at sometime in their school lives will have to cope with issues that may affect their learning.
These might be:
coping with change, relationships, family difficulties, separation, divorce, bereavement, debt and money worries and/or emotional troubles.
All of these can have an affect on how a child behaves or how they cope in their everyday lives.
Home, GP and visits to other professionals:
This is support that the Waterloo School’s Wellbeing Manager can offer you.
If you are unable to come in to school or need support at an appointment the Wellbeing Manager can make sure that your views and feelings are passed on to other professionals.
This will create a better understanding and communication between parents, carers and professionals.
Parent groups/Drop-in sessions:
The Waterloo School can offer you the opportunity to get together with other parents and carers to share your experiences.
Parents and carers drop-in is a place where we can chat in an informal setting. Come for as long as you would like. Sometimes we have guest speakers but mainly we meet with other like minded parents, who understand what it is like living with our children.
We are a small non-judgemental friendly group and siblings are welcome.
Together we can help develop a better understanding and communication with your child and to help create strategies to cope with challenging behaviour.
Please contact Ann Alexander by e/mail: A.Alexander@waterloo.hants.sch.uk or call by telephoning the School on 02392 255956/Mobile: 07590 774418.
