Parent Link Worker


I would like to introduce you to Gemma our Parent Link worker. Gemma works at St Joseph's on a Friday and her role is to support families. Our school link worker will provide a vital link between home and school, and an on-going contact as children move from school to school. The PLW can help with the following:

  • Children who are experiencing difficult times or are withdrawn or anxious;
  • Parents/carers experiencing difficulties with their child’s behavior;
  • Families who are reacting to change, such as parental separation or bereavement;
  • Parent/carers whose children are reluctant to attend school or have been excluded;
  • Parents/carers who may need support on a wide range of issues or difficulties impacting on their family life eg., illness, domestic violence, disability, financial difficulties.

The PLW can also:

  • Help with links between home and school;
  • Support parents/carers at school meetings;
  • Help parents/carers find their way through the education system;
  • Guide parents/carers towards other sources of help, advice and support;
  • Provide information on support groups for parents/carers.
