Family Support

At Hertsmere Jewish Primary School, we value the contributions that parents and carers make to the school and offer many opportunities to get involved.

Most parents/carers/families need support from time to time. We hope as a school community, we can offer support, advice and guidance to assist families if requested. We have access to a family support worker, who works with families on a variety of different issues ranging from behaviour management advice to safeguarding concerns. We work closely with other agencies, such as housing and have good links to local community groups.

There are many agencies which offer a wide range of support for families and some useful links are listed below.

Delivering Special Provision Locally

DSPL is a Hertfordshire-wide partnership approach where parents, staff in early years settings and schools, further education colleges, local authority officers and representatives from other agencies, work together as part of an Area Group, reviewing and developing the range of provision and support services available to their local community that :

  • Meets the needs of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), aged 0-25, as close to home as possible.
  • Improves outcomes for wellbeing and attainment
  • Widens choice for children and parents/carers
  • Removes barriers to learning
  • Uses resources more effectively

This will enable parents, staff and young people to access a wide range of information, resources and referral forms, along with a directory of services across the local area. Please click here for more information.
