Nova’s role across school is to work with our children, families, school staff, additional agencies and resources within the local community to support all of our children and families to achieve well in all aspects of development. This includes further developing the range of provision and support we give to our families encouraging positive experiences and communications for all. In addition to this, Nova is able to support in other aspects of family life for example those who require support with attendance, advice around family issues and signposting to additional services and resources within the local community.
Across the school year, Nova engages children and families alongside the community in Family Learning events. Previous events have included floristry, art and crafts, cookery, pottery, Basic Skills accreditation and First Aid qualifications – keep an eye out on the newsletters for future events. As a school, we would love to know of any courses or support you would be interested taking part in.
Nova can be contacted via the school office, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the main office at any time across the school day for an informal chat about support that can be provided.
Nova supports young carers from across school ensuring that pupils who provide caring roles within their family home are well supported. Please contact Nova if you wish to find out more or to discuss concerns that you may have about a pupil with a young carer responsibility. The Young Carers website provides a range of information and can be found at www.carers.org.
