At Ashmount we work with School-Home Support (SHS)
“School-Home Support (SHS) is a charity working with children and families to maximise educational opportunities and improve life chances.
SHS looks beyond the classroom to understand and tackle the issues affecting children’s learning, such as poverty, inadequate housing and mental ill-health. SHS is an early intervention service that aims to break intergenerational cycles of deprivation and low aspiration, helping to ensure that children are in school and ready to learn.
The biggest influence on a child’s life is their experiences at home. SHS employs expert practitioners to work with families on addressing a wide range of complex issues, building their engagement and resilience so that they can resolve future issues independently. Without this support, children are much less likely to achieve their best potential.”
Lisa James is our SHS practitioner who works with us on a Monday and Tuesday in school.
If you are a parent of a child at Ashmount and would like further support around attendance, punctuality, behaviour or engagement with learning in school or at home. Please contact Lisa via email: Lisa.James@shs.org.uk or in person via the main office.
