Family Support

Here at St Patrick’s Catholic Primary school, we are committed to supporting you as families at home as well as helping your child learn at school.  We can offer support in a number of different ways.

Our Child and Family Learning Support Mentor is Miss Gregory, she works within the school to help children and families with any difficulties they may be experiencing.

A Child and Family Learning Support Mentor is here to:

  • Listen
  • Offer support and practical advice to the whole family
  • Promote positive behaviour
  • Offer encouragement
  • Build self-esteem, resilience, confidence and motivation
  • Identify barriers to learning
  • Promote our Core Christian Values

We can refer you or your child/family to the Children and Families Well-being Service. Also, we  are now part of a Morecambe wide project which brings a family support worker linked to CAMHS into school and can refer you to them for help.  We also have an Educational Psychologist who can offer support over the phone at this time if you are struggling with your child at home.  Additionally, we can arrange for food parcels to be delivered to your home if you find that you are struggling because of changes in income.  Please contact school by phone or email if you need a referral to any of these services.  Your call will be treated confidentially.
