Mrs Karen Bower is the Family Support Worker for Kinson Primary School.
She works with children and parents across the school. She is available on the school gates every morning from 8.40 until 9am. Mrs Bower can be found on the Kinson Road side gate. She is also available for individual pre-booked appointments via the school office.
Her role is to help parents by signposting to relevant support agencies. She is happy to listen, to share ideas, and to provide support for our families including one- to one parenting sessions, parenting courses, signposting to other agencies, accessing further education, adult education, lunch and uniform grants, the local foodbank and much more.
This year we have hosted a Triple P Parenting Course, Parent Workshops, a Money Matters Course and a parenting workshop on Autism Awareness run by Autism Wessex which were very successful.
We are currently running a parent coffee morning at the Kinson Hub (library) every Wednesday morning from 9am onwards, during our building works. Please drop in for a coffee and a chat, babies and toddlers are welcome.
If you would like any support, advice or guidance with parenting worries please do not hesitate to contact us at the school on 01202 572713.
