Family Support Worker

 Family Support Worker 

My name is Dave Hatherall and I am your Family Support Worker (FSW) at High Street Primary Academy. I am a friendly approachable person with a good sense of humour.
My working hours are:
Monday & Tuesday: 8.30am - 1pm
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: 8.30am - 3.30pm.
I have 25 years experience of working in Plymouth Primary and Secondary schools, my previous roles have included:
Area Parent Support Advisor, Learning Mentor ( Excellence Cluster), Inclusion Manager and Behaviour Support Manager.
My role varies from supporting you within school and also outside agencies. The role really is whatever you need it to be and in whatever area you need help/support with whilst your child/children are at the school.
I have developed many different approaches that help children and parents to explore what helps them, to accept the things they cannot change and have courage to change the things they can.
As a parent myself I understand the challenges that families face and in my experience know that children's behaviour is often very different at home.
I can help you to explore ideas that will create positive change at home and help to improve relationships, reduce stress and anxiety.
If you are in need of any support or advice I will do my best to find a way forward. 
Please feel free to come in and talk with me either on the playground, our coffee mornings or through a pre - arranged meeting.
I can be contacted through the school office, telephone 01752 225649.
