Family and Pastoral Support
Here at Compass we have a school Wellbeing Team who work with children and families to provide support when required. The team operates an open-door policy to children and families and are based within the Wellbeing Hub in the centre of our school. The team consists of Callum Reilly (Safeguarding Officer); Dawn Gillett (Education Welfare Assistant); and Alison Jones (Pupil Champion).
The work provided by the team is focused on wellbeing, attendance, welfare and child protection. The team provide a range of bespoke interventions and support programmes for children, along with coordinating Early Help Assessments for families and leading our Family Hub which is open to parents, carers and pre-school aged children. The Family Hub operate regular Coffee and Craft Mornings and parenting support programmes/family events in partnership with Northants Children's Trust.
The Wellbeing Team are available to provide support and advice to parents and carers with any aspect of parenting whilst also working to support children in removing barriers to learning. The team work closely with partner agencies within the community and are also able to signpost parents and carers to other appropriate channels of support. These may include Home Start; local Children's Centres; School Nursing Team; Citizens Advice; and our local Community Policing Teams.
