Families and Community

A message from our Family Support Worker


“My name is Carol Holmes and I am the Family Support Worker at Alumwell Junior School.  I work with parents in an engaging and supportive way.  I can provide lots of information to help and support familied and I can be contacted on 07762 835775 by phone, text or Whatsapp.


I work with families to address any worries they may have and offer early support. This can include support with your child’s behaviour in school or at home, advice and guidance on a range of issues including housing, benefits and debts as well as be a listening ear.

I can support families with food bank vouchers if you are finding yourself in difficulties, help with completing forms you may have or signpost you to agencies that can help.

I can also support at meetings or appointments you may have.


During this academic year, we hope to be able to restart many of the activities and courses that Covid restrictions prevented us from running.

We are hoping to be able to run ESOL classes, IT courses, understanding your child’s behaviour courses within school as well as coffee mornings/afternoons so you can come into school and meet other parents.”

A message from our Social Mentor


"My name is Lana Tolley and from September 2021 I have taken up a new role here at Alumwell Junior School as a Social Mentor. This sits within the Inclusion Team that consists of Mrs Timmims Assistant head and SEND Coordinator, Carol Holmes Safeguarding manager and myself. 


Some of you may already know me as I have been working in school and have offered a Play Therapy Service for the past six years. 


As a Social Mentor the role will consolidate my knowledge and skills as a Play and Creative Arts Counsellor for Children and Young People to support children individually and in groups with their social interactions, emotional needs and behaviours to support them in overcoming any barriers that could impact on their academic progression. Along with taking on some responsibilities from Mrs Lawrenson's role around the behaviour for learning in school. With this in mind, you may hear from me, or feel this is an area you are highlighting for your child and you may want to explore this further."
