Supporting Families

How We Support Families at Claremont.

At Claremont we are aware that in order for children and young people to achieve to their own potential we need families to be on board, reinforcing the skills learned at school, especially incommunication and self help skills.  We also want to work with families around what we focus on inschool.  We also appreciate that sometimes it is difficult to be a parent or carer and we all needsupport and advice at times.  

At Claremont we have two Family Link Workers, Suzy Robson and Natasha Fitzgerald, who can provide a range of services to help.

Suzy and Natasha provide workshops for parent/carers around sensitive areas such as what it is like growing upwith a disability and how parent/carers can support this.  They cover areas such as changing bodies,understanding behaviour and practical skills around personal care.

They can help with practical things like form filling, linking with other professionals and accessingappropriate services.

Along with Moria Stephens, our Transition Support Worker, Suzy and Natasha offer regular information mornings, somewith outside speakers or school staff, or just other parents/carers.

They also provides drop-in sessions where parents/carers are able to call in for a chat or supportaround a particular thing.

They have flexible hours so is available after school and sometimes during holidays.
