Busill Jones Primary has a family support service at the door step of your school.

 

Being a parent/carer brings many challenges throughout your child's life, We are here to support your every need by offering a professional and a non-judgmental service.

 

All work carried out is in line with Busill Jones Primary's Safeguarding procedures and policies. We work closely with Walsall Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).

 

We offer a variety of support within all areas of emotional and social development for children as well as their parents. Our aim is to ensure your child is happy, safe and thriving within the school.

 

Some of the areas of support on offer for you and your child are:

 

  • Housing concerns

  • Positive social groups for children

  • Raise awareness of bullying

  • Raise awareness of internet safety

  • Tailored packages to support individual needs of children
