Mrs Brizzolara has a new job! Fortunately, she still works here at St. Philip Neri with St. Bede but in a new role, as our Child & Family Support Worker. Mrs Brizzolara is here to help families who may need support or advice with employment, may be worried about finances, are concerned about their child’s development, or need some guidance with key parenting skills such as managing behaviour, morning and bedtime routines, developing language, toilet training, healthy eating and hygiene. In turn, Mrs Brizz works directly with the children too. It might be to discuss friendship issues, or to boost their wellbeing. It might also be to talk about any worries or fears, their engagement and performance in lessons, or to perhaps just be that person to provide some comfort when feeling unhappy.

Mrs Brizzolara will be in school each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and will continue to lead our Forest School. She’ll be on the gate at the start of each day so please do speak to her if you feel she could help you or your child in any way.
