Pastoral support for Families at Roundhill School
At Roundhill we have a Family Support Co-ordinator, Mrs Julia McDonald, who works Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. She is here between 8:30am and 4:00pm and available to parents for general chats, or, if you would like a longer chance to talk about anything, a meeting can be arranged. If you would like to speak to her please call the school office (01225 424950) or ask at Reception.
Mrs McDonald can offer parents support with issues they may feel are affecting their children and can also offer support for your children with any worries or anxieties they may be experiencing. She is also able to signpost families to a wide variety of services including family support services, the school nurse, parenting groups, Bath City Farm and other voluntary agencies. She is part of the school’s Safeguarding Team.
Mrs McDonald helps reinforce the nurturing and supportive environment that we provide at Roundhill. She is trained in Thrive which supports children with their emotional development and resilience building. She is also trained in basic counselling skills so is able to offer our children someone to talk to if they have worries or concerns. Mrs McDonald is trained in parenting programmes such as Incredible Years which can help parents understand and manage their child’s emotional and behavioural needs. She is also trained in the Family Partnership Approach to support parents whose children have special educational needs. We also provide Drama Therapy which can be discussed with Mrs McDonald or Mrs Benjamin our Assistant Head Teacher/SENCo/Inclusion.
Please feel free to contact Mrs McDonald if you feel she could support your child or your family.
