Filton Hill School

Family link/Social, Emotional and Well-being

All members of staff care for the well being of all the children.

Bullying is not tolerated at Filton Hill in any shape or form.  As soon as we become aware of a problem, we deal with it immediately and involve parents if necessary.

The children are encouraged to talk to their class teacher or any other member of staff about any concerns.  

For our children to succeed and progress at school, we need to ensure they are happy and confident. We are here to support families when times become challenging.  Whether this is a problem at home or school, an ongoing issue or something new, we are here to help.

 

At Filton Hill Primary, we know how important it is to have a good relationship with our families.  We also know that sometimes life at home or school does not run smoothly. 

If you feel you need support or help, we can work with you to find solutions or signpost you to organisations that can offer further guidance.  This may include:

  • Supporting children with low self-esteem, anxiety or behaviour problems (at home as well as school).
  • Practical ideas for getting to school on time and improving attendance.
  • Concerns regarding social skills, friendship issues.
  • Improving family relationships at home.
  • Supporting parents/carers when times become tough.
  • Concerns regarding mental health.
  • Family break-up/bereavement
  • A listening ear.

Being a parent or carer is a tough job and can sometimes feel like a rollercoaster ride.

Our parents tell us that family life can sometimes be challenging.

We strive to support children and families who may need a bit of extra support and guidance. Working in partnership with you we aims to develop children’s wellbeing, whether helping with friendships, transition, bereavement, family break up, anxiety or anything else that may be causing a barrier to their learning or wellbeing.

As a school we work with many outside agencies so we can sign post you in the right direction for more help and advice.
