The teaching team supported by Miss Morris and Miss Everett are available to help families with issues that might not necessarily be seen as educational but can have a significant impact on children and their learning. The aim is to support adults so that they can help children achieve their potential and enjoy school.
Miss Morris and Miss Everett can be contacted if you have any issues or concerns regarding your child’s behaviour and their social and emotional development. These may include your child's reactions to significant life changes such as starting school or preschool, moving home or school, arrival of a sibling or family separations. We can also help you manage your child’s worries, anxiety, anger, tantrums and meltdowns, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, issues with siblings, jealousy, withdrawal, morning and evening routines...
Whatever the issue, no matter how “big” or “small” it seems – we are ready to listen and respond in a friendly and supportive manner. If we don’t have an answer, hopefully we can help you to work out how to find it elsewhere.

Apart from talking to parents on individual basis, Marijana Filipovic-Carter, Move More's Family Engagement Officer also runs parenting groups and courses. Her informal, weekly coffee morning sessions provide a place for parents to meet and chat, ask questions and be more involved with the school life. This has proved particularly invaluable during the lock downs.
