"We have been so impressed with the quality of service we receive through WPA. Having a dedicated EWO has had a positive impact on our attendance. The reports that WPA produce are excellent for informing Governors and other stakeholders.


WPA Early Intervention and Parent Worker has worked with us to support parents and families for the last four terms and we have really seen the impact of her time and guidance for the families that she has been involved with.


The support has covered a whole range of aspects including:

- Parental separation

- Financial difficulty

- Challenges that an adoptive family were facing

- Restorative work to improve the relationship between parents and their children

- Signposting parents to appropriate external agencies

- Completing Early Help Assessments


She has consistently liaised with the school to keep up informed of challenges, positive steps, changes to the family situation, and to check on how the children are presenting in class. She has worked with the families in a flexible manner to meet the family's needs, sometimes just with the parents, either face-to-face or over the phone, sometimes with the family together, sometimes with the parents and children separately. This has personalised the support to each family and made each family feel comfortable.


The work that WPA has done has been very positive and it made us realise the importance of this kind of family support work. "
