Malachi Trust Family Support


At St James, we are aware of the challenges faced by our families and know how important it is for them to have the support that they need, as soon as they need it. We are supported by a family support organisation called Malachi Trust which uses therapeutic based techniques, and aim to support families to see a better future, believe it’s attainable and choose to make it happen. Each week, a Family Support Worker comes into school and offers a one-to-one support service after an initial referral from school. By creating a safe space for families to express themselves they promote good mental health and well-being. The Malachi team deliver a solution focused intervention to begin the process of change. They offer non-judgemental support that focusses on a range of challenges including emotional wellbeing, self-confidence, behaviour, anxiety and stress and family relationships and work with both the parent and the child.

If parents and carers feel that support is needed, they can talk to Mrs Pritchard, Mrs Smith or Mrs Buckle who are always happy to help.
