Family Support

Raising children is wonderful but can sometimes be really challenging! We know that sometimes families need a little extra support or advice. If you would like to discuss anything or would like some extra encouragement, we are here to help.

Our Family Support Adviser and Wellbeing Champion  and our ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) work with children across the school in raising self- esteem and supporting with different social situations or behaviours. We feel that children learn better and are happier in school if their emotional needs are supported and addressed.

Our Family Support Adviser (FSA) can help and offer advice to parents on:

  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Money Management
  • Bedtimes and Routines
  • Managing Behaviour
  • or someone just to talk to as a 'listening ear' when needed.

If you would like to discuss anything or ask for support, please just pop into the office or give us a call to speak to Mrs Shelley Thorpe and we will do all that we can for you.

  • By phone: 01344 301269
  • By email: or
  • By making an appointment through the school office

Parent Support

I am Shelley Thorpe, Family Support worker for Jennett’s Park CE Primary School.

I have now been in this post for nearly a year and it has been lovely getting to know some of you through the workshops that have been run in school, or by being able to offer help and support.

I can support families with a variety of matters ranging from health, education, finances, behaviour, parenting strategies or just to be a starting point if you need a listening ear. If there is anything that I can’t support with I will signpost you to someone who can.

I also organise workshops within school covering a range of topics, so do keep an eye out for those.

My usual working week is Mon-Thurs between 9.30am and 2.30pm and if I am not available I will get back to you as soon as I can.

We have taken part in a whole range of Parent Child workshops:


—BRAVO  to Jack, Aliyah, Elsie and Jack and their parents. The   children have been working hard work but also having fun while learning phonics and reading with their parents. Over the weeks they have created phonics games with their families and shared them as a group via zoom sessions every week.


If you would like to take part in parent workshops run by the school let Mrs Thorpe Family Support Worker know via  our secretary@ or  family support@ emails
