School Nurse and Family Support
Here at Queensmead Primary Academy we are pleased to have a great support team from the NHS as well as in-house specialist support.
If you do have any concerns or worries or would like to speak to someone either in person or via e-mail or telephone then think about contacting Miss Hargreaves our Inclusion and Family Support Worker.
Miss Hargreaves is a part-time (Weds -Fr) member of staff who supports both pupils and their families with a wide range of issues from health and wellbeing through to problems with housing. She has a wealth of experience and is happy to meet individual parents or families to signpost them to further services or support them in school.
She is also responsible for co-ordinating our fun and exciting parent events and Family Learning opportunities. You can find out more about these by checking the newsletters for information. These prove to be very popular with our families and usually need pre-booking.
Click here to look through our Gallery section of the website. Here you will find photos of a range of events, including some when families are invited into school.
