Hello, I am Clare Hurren, the Home School Liaison here at Whitton Primary School. My role is to support you as parents and of course the children that attend the School. Mrs Hardy works alongside me to support families and pupils and is the school's attendance lead so will work with you to ensure your children attend school as much as possible.
We are here to listen, offer advice and support on a number of issues relating to both school and family life. You can find us doing door duty in the morning, by calling the School on 01473 741225 or by coming in to the main office.
Below I have added some useful links and information.
At Whitton CP School we have a team of Learning Mentors, their role is to support the children to be able to learn. This covers aspects of behaviour management, emotional support, group work, lunchtime interventions, supporting children in the classroom and being available to deal with issues as they arise.
They also run our Nurture Groups - we have two groups of 8 children, one for KS1 and one for KS2. These take place on two afternoons a week and are designed to support children who need help understanding their emotions, boundaries, who lack in confidence/self esteem or are going through a difficult period and could benefit from working in a small group environment.
If you feel your child could benefit from some support from this team, please discuss with your child's class teacher.
