Family Support

Marian Swift

Marian Swift is our Family Liaison Officer. If you would like to speak to her regarding family support please contact the school office, meetings and events for parents can be viewed on the website calendar.

Home Visits
Marian can also visit families at home and support parents and children with any difficulties they may be having e.g. behaviour, self-help skills and filling in transport forms etc. If you feel that a home visit would be helpful please contact Marian to discuss this further.

Parent Forum
The Parent Forum is held on the first Wednesday of every month. There will be a guest speaker each month and the meeting is also an opportunity to meet other parents at Manor School.

The Family Group
Manor School has a regular small group meeting for parents on a Friday morning which offers the opportunity to meet together and share ideas and resources in relation to their children’s development. The aim is to provide a supportive group where parents can discuss issues such as sleep difficulties, routines, challenging behaviour, self-help skills and the demands of parenting.
If you would like further information about this group please contact Marian via the school office.
