Family Support Worker
Mrs Morton is our Family Support Worker in school,
Mrs Morton's role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. She can help you with any worries you may have in relation to your child’s education, behaviour and well-being, and is also here as someone to talk to for our Saltersgate grown-ups too, should you need it.
Advice and support is confidential, and non-judgmental, although Mrs Morton may not have all the answers, she will always try her best to help you find them whilst guiding you in a positive direction.
Mrs Morton's role involves building positive relationships with your children, and maintaining them throughout their infant school years, ensuring they always have a consistent ‘go to’ person to share anything they are worried about, their achievements, or to share the fun they had at the weekend!
As a Family Support Worker, Mrs Morton may visit your family home as a welfare visit for absent children or to provide more bespoke family support. This is again, not to be intrusive, or judgmental, and it is purely to see how your child and your family are – Because here at Saltersgate, we care.
As a school, we feel that being together as a community is important; for parents to have those positive relationships, not only with Mrs Morton, our Family Support Worker, but with other parents in school, someone to chat to, or sometimes just to listen to, so keep a look out for coffee mornings and parent workshops as Mrs Morton will be organising these throughout the year.
If you would like to contact Mrs Morton, she is based in the front office in the main school entrance. She will also be around on the playground most days at drop off or pick up times. You can also contact Mrs Morton on 01302 784429 or emailing Familysupport@Saltersgate-inf.doncaster.sch.uk
Early Help is a way of thinking and working together as services with families that have additional or more complex needs. Early Help can prevent problems from getting worse by providing support to families when a need is identified or as soon as a problem emerges.
