My name is Rachel Carrick and I am the Parent and Pupil Support Advisor at Cam Woodfield Junior School. I am available to meet with parents to offer support and advice on a range of issues, including school attendance, behaviour at home, anxiety, routines, homework and supporting children through bereavement or relationship break downs.
I can also sign-post parents to other agencies that may be able to offer you and your family support.
If you wish to make an appointment with me, please contact me by email or through the school office.

Parenting Courses
 
Mrs Carrick runs the Parents Plus Children's Programme.
 
This is a nine week course where parents and carers of Cam Woodfield schools can pick up tips and support each other to be even better parents.

The course is free of charge and includes a helpful parent booklet.

Please contact Mrs Carrick if you are interested in joining the next course, which will be held during the Autumn Term.
