GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Home School Link Worker

MISS BERNICE JACKSONMy name is Bernice Jackson and I am the Home School Link Worker and one of the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads at Salfords Primary School. At Salfords we strongly believe that the best outcomes for our pupils happen when parents/carers work in partnership with our school.

The main purpose of my role is to work with families, school children and the school, providing support and guidance as well as signposting to local and national organisations in times of stress and change. As part of my role I am able to support families by:

  • Leading on Early Help Assessments and Team Around the Family meetings

  • Offer advice and guidance with parenting skills 

  • Offer both long and short-term support in promoting positive family relationships

  • Accessing mental health support

  • Parents and carers experiencing difficulties managing their child’s behaviour

  • Parents, carers and children who are experiencing change, such as parental separation or bereavement

  • Parents and carers whose children are not attending school or who have been excluded

  • Parents and carers who may need support on a wide range of issues impacting on their family life, such as illness, separation, domestic violence, bereavement

I can help by offering:

  • A chance to talk in a confidential and non-judgemental environment

  • One to one support and advice

  • Parenting guidance on developing and maintaining positive discipline

  • Help to access grants

  • Support groups for parents and carers

  • Home visits to support families and children

  • Links to other agencies
