Family Support Officer

Hello everyone! I’m Mrs Kassam, Central Park Primary School’s Family Support Officer (FSO). I have been working at Central Park Primary School for the past 10 years in various roles. As from September 2016 I have stepped into the role of Family Support Officer. At Central Park we always look to provide the best possible services to our children, families and community. We understand that many children and families’ experience difficult times which can make a happy, successful school and home life a struggle. If you as a parent have any worries about your child, you can always talk to their class teacher or phase leader who can work and address these issues. However, if you feel you are not able to or maybe there are other problems you need some help with you can always get in touch with me.

My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families/cares within our school community. I can help you with any issues that you may have in relation to your child’s education, behaviour and wellbeing. I am also here as someone to talk to you if need help or have any queries.

I can meet with you in school, during school hours. Advice and support is confidential although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the schools safeguarding and child protection policy. I may not have all the answers, but hopefully I can help you to work out how to find them or signpost you to the relevant person or organisation.

                                                         Family Support Drop-in

Drop-in coffee morning: every Wednesday 9am-10.30am in the Community Hub. Come in and see me for a friendly chat, advice/support and any other queries you may have. If I am unable to help, I will sign-post you to the right person who may be able to offer you the best advice.

As well as formal appointments, I am always around at the beginning and end of the school day to have a quick friendly chat.

Newham Early Help: Strengthening Families Offer

Strengthening Families has been organised by Newham’s early help teams. It is about recognising that all families need a helping hand at times such as these and this helping hand should be as varied and as diverse as our families. Strengthening Families is steeped in our values of keeping people at the heart of what we do.
