Filton Hill School

Supporting Our Families

For our children to succeed and progress at school, we need to ensure they are happy and confident. We are here to support families when times become challenging.  Whether this is a problem at home or school, an ongoing issue or something new, we are here to help.

We know how important it is to have a good relationship with our families. We also know that sometimes life at home or school does not run smoothly. If you feel you need support or help, we can work with you to find solutions or signpost you to organisations that can offer further guidance.

This may include:

  • Supporting children with low self-esteem, anxiety or behaviour problems (at home as well as school)
  • Practical ideas for getting to school on time and improving attendance
  • Concerns regarding social skills, friendship issues
  • Improving family relationships at home
  • Supporting parents/carers when times become tough
  • Concerns regarding mental health (adults and children)
  • Family break-up/bereavement
  • Financial concerns
