Family Support Worker
As you may be aware, Runcorn All Saints have recruited a Family Support Worker starting today. I would like to introduce myself, I am Mrs. Charnley.
The role of Family Support Worker
My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. I can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child's education, behaviour and wellbeing. I am also here as someone to talk to if you need it!
I can meet with you at home or in school at a time to suit yourself.
