Family Support Team

The Family Support Manager at Gainsborough works closely with parents and children to promote attendance, punctuality, positive relationships and aims to reduce any barriers to learning.

The Family Support Manager regularly supports parents and families to seek advice and support from a number of services. 

Parent Groups and Courses

Some of our most successful courses are led by ‘Twenty First Century Parents.’  These bespoke courses are so successful because they are written specifically for the needs identified by the parents themselves. 

Early Help Brokerage 

Some families may benefit from support and advice at home. Families may be directed to the Early Help Brokerage Team for a number of reasons, including; support with behaviour, improve attendance, domestic abuse, substance misuse. 

Loss and Bereavement

Children can be referred for loss and bereavement counselling if they are struggling after a loss of a family member, close friend or pet. 

Domestic Abuse 

We are fortunate to have a multitude of services for supporting those experiencing domestic abuse. See file below for available services. If you are experiencing domestic abuse and are concerned this will be impacting your children at Gainsborough, please speak to Miss Epps.
