Inclusion Worker – Karen Palmer
Contact Karen on 07860 929201 or via the school office.
At Haydon Wick Primary School we do our best to ensure all children are happy & settled, secure & fulfilling their potential.
However some children require additional emotional support in order to fully access their learning. They may be experiencing difficulties within the family or with friends, have a medical condition that impacts on their daily life or suffer anxiety in new or changing situations.
Karen works closely with parents, carers & teachers to identify these children and to organise time and activities to provide the necessary support to overcome these hurdles.
In addition Karen provides support to parents and carers who are themselves experiencing difficult situations and is able to signpost access to support services.
Karen monitors the attendance of pupils and meets regularly with the Education Welfare Officer to discuss any concerns.
