Family and Pupil Support Services

Welcome to Abbots Hall Primary Academy Family and Pupil Support Team. 

 

At Abbots Hall, we are passionate and committed to creating the right environment for children and families to learn and grow together, being the very best they can be.

 

Our Governors, School Leaders and Staff understand that sometimes life can be really tough for children and things like falling out with friends, keeping up with excellent behaviour, getting to school on time or coping with difficult circumstances out of school can get in the way of their learning. We also recognise that life can also be very difficult at times for our families and we are always here to help parents having problems with housing, positive parenting, getting your child to school on time but generally we here to help with any worries you may have. Parents are always welcome to drop in and discuss any concerns they may have and if we can't help, we normally know someone who can!

 

The Family and Pupil Support Team is dedicated to ensuring the children and families of Abbots Hall feel cared for, listened to and appropriately supported. We work alongside many partners from national agencies as well as those from Thurrock Local Authority, and by working with partner agencies we can make sure that everyone within our school community has access to the early support they need, from those most knowledgeable and experienced.

Challenges families face accessing professional help for childhood anxiety difficulties

Did you know?

Two children in every class experience anxiety that significantly affects their day-to-day life.

Only one third of these children receive the professional help they need!

 

Our school is taking part in a national research study about child anxiety funded by the National Institute for Health Research.  We are hoping as many families as possible with children in years 3 - 6 will get involved.  The research team from the University of Reading are really keen for a broad range of families to take part, including those with children who are confident, those who are anxious and those in between.   We are sending home information about the research study, together with some short questionnaires.  You can also find out more about the research, agree to take part and complete the short questionnaires here: https://reading.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/n-cat_parent_questionnaires

 

As a way of saying thank you, the University of Reading we will provide our school with £1 for each complete set of returned questionnaires (parent, child, teacher) - so it'd be great to get as many families involved as possible!

 

The Research Project Aims:  

  • To find out more about why so few families access professional help for child anxiety 
  • To identify the challenges families face seeking and accessing professional help, and identify improvements and changes that could be made to make it easier for families to access professional help
