Family Support Worker

Picture 1



My name is Sam and I am the Child & Family Support Worker here at Forest Oak.


I am available to all Forest Oak parents throughout the school day to offer advice and support on a number of issues you may be experiencing at home.


Part of my role is coordinating parent groups and coffee mornings. All parents are welcome at all of our coffee mornings, which take place every other Friday throughout term time. Coffee mornings are a good place for parents to meet and talk to others who have similar experiences with their children. As many pupils travel to school on transport some parents begin to feel cut off as they are not at the school each day and coffee mornings are a great way of staying in touch with school and other parents.


If you have any concerns regarding your child or would like some advice or support from me please contact me at school on 0121 717 0088.


I am available throughout the school day and will be happy to help in any way I can.


I look forward to seeing you at one of our coffee mornings.
