Family Support

At Moss Side we are fortunate to have a dedicated member of staff who is employed to support the families of our pupils.


Hi, I’m Karen Gardner, I’m a Family Support Worker employed by Moss Side Primary School.

I am part of the safeguarding team and I work very closely with children, families and staff in school to ensure each child is able to be the best they can be in a safe and supportive environment.

In my role I liaise with outside agencies and provide a service to families who may just need a little bit of extra help to get them through a difficult time, I can signpost and refer to specific services or just be here to listen.

Here are just a few areas I can offer support with:

  1. Routines, boundaries and consequences
  2. Behaviour
  3. Change in family circumstances
  4. Special Educational Needs
  5. Attendance
  6. Housing
  7. Finances
  8. Mental health in children and adults
