BCW Schools Partnership
St Mary’s CE High School is the lead school for the Broxbourne, Cheshunt and Waltham Cross (BCW) School Partnership consisting of a small team of highly trained family support workers committed to supporting the local community
Alison Royce – School Family Support Coordinator
Gail Marino – Senior Family Support Worker
The BCW Family support team provide high quality support for the benefit of children, young people and families in the Borough of Broxbourne. We are employed by St Mary’s School and, in part, funded by Hertfordshire County Council to provide family support for families.
Support is available to all families whose children attend one of our partnership schools as listed below:
St Mary’s CE High School
Bonneygrove Primary School
Dewhurst St Mary CE Primary School
Fairfields Primary School
Holy Trinity CE Primary School
St Pauls Catholic Primary School
Support can be provided directly by Family Support Workers, or they can signpost to other agencies, on topics such as money advice; support with housing; understanding and accessing benefits; managing challenging behaviour; domestic abuse; family breakdown; bereavement and support with mental health
Family support Workers are able to work with parents/carers to provide support, as well as working directly with pupils/students if needed providing a holistic approach
How can I be supported by a Family Support Worker?
Parents/carers can self -refer for support. The school can refer parents/carers and this is done with the full agreement of the parent/carer.
For more information or to make a referral, please call Alison Royce on 01992 412647 or email Alison.firstname.lastname@example.org
