- Family Workers
At The Village School, we have a strong support system for parents, carers and families. Our aim, as a team is to improve the link between home and school and to encourage families to become an active part of the school community.
Our family support worker is Meena Mehta. Meena's role is to support all families and carers at The Village School, regarding advising with information and any issues or concerns they may have.
She recognises the many challenges our families/carers may face and wishes to be there as someone to listen to and to advise as necessary over problems covering areas such as, Transitions, SEN support and getting additional support.
Meena keeps herself-updated with current initiatives which might be of benefit to families and pupils by attending a variety of training and conferences. She also organises and facilitates workshops, drop-in surgeries, training, coffee mornings. Additionally, she attends Annual Reviews, CIN meetings, meetings with parents for support when requested, help fill in forms, sign posting to the right agencies.
She can arrange meetings for parents and the agencies involved with their child. She works closely with the Safeguarding Lead over areas where we have concerns around attendance or home issues.
Meena leads the Preparing for Adulthood and Transition Information sessions for Parents & Carers. If you would like to contact Meena, please call the school on 0300 303 0610 ext 149 or her mobile number 07867187308 and leave a txt message. Email: email@example.com
