- Medical support for children during school hours
- Liaison between home and school
- Help accessing other support services (local and national) for students and families
- Help understanding how you can help your child succeed at school through attendance
Meet the Team
Lakhvir Gill – I have been with the Academy for over 6 years. The welfare role has given me the opportunity to help students and parents/carers with medical and attendance needs. We have an extensive range of contacts with outside agencies. This helps us to provide a variety of services to improve their school experience. Our strong team of staff are here to assist all students/parents with queries regarding their medical care and attendance.
Kuldeep Virk – I am a mother and have always wanted to work with children. After studying towards my child-minding qualifications, I decided to apply for a post in school. I initially started out in the Secondary phase in September 2011 and then moved to the Primary phase in 2012. I enjoy working with the students, staff and parents in the Primary.
Drop in sessions are available for all parents who want to have a chat with us about their child’s medical needs and/ or attendance. These sessions are available every Thursday between 9am-10.30am. Please call in advance on to let us know if you to intend to drop in so we can ensure someone is free to meet with you.
We look forward to welcoming you!
