Supporting Your Child

Our Approach to Wellbeing

Family Support Services

Would you like life at home to be calmer and happier?

Do you ask yourself, “what can I do to improve my child’s behaviour?”

Do you wish someone was there to give you some support and advice?

If the answer to those questions is yes, we may be the service for you.

The intensive Family Support Service works across all four Seaford primary schools and Seaford Head School to support families who need help with parenting challenges. We work with parents/carers and their children to improve behaviours, school attendance and the wellbeing of all family members, providing a practitioner who will help you develop strategies and routines to make home life and school life more enjoyable for all.

How can we help?

  • Help with building effective routines
  • Strategies on managing negative behaviours
  • Support for parents/carers when children are refusing to attend school
  • Improving sleep routines
  • Putting boundaries in place to support positive action
  • Supporting parents/carers around how to encourage safe expression of emotions

and much more!

Other Useful Resources

As a school, we understand that finding the right support for your child is not only important, it is essential. We have therefore put together some useful resources for parents and carers to access should they feel they require support. Some of these are local organisations and others are national charities. Either way, each contact should be able to offer you the advice, support and understanding that you need.
