Advice and Support

At Aston Clinton School, we are committed to the wellbeing of our children and their families. In school, we are fortunate enough to have an Emotional Support Worker (Mrs Astle) who works in partnership with parents/carers, schools and other agencies to support families, aiming to reduce current stressful situations and prevent future difficulties.


Mrs Astle's aim is to ensure that all children are able to enjoy school,  are happy and secure and able to achieve their potential. 

The work she does includes:

  • Offering support in school,
  • Group work exploring self-esteem, social skills and friendships
  • Supporting parents/carers and families,
  • Improving attendance and punctuality,
  • Promoting positive behaviour

She can help by providing:

  • One to one support, listening ear and advice
  • Signposting to other agencies - i.e. Information of local services and community activities
  • Signposting support groups for parents/carers
  • Support in accessing Early Help Intervention
  • Support and guidance through Statutory Interventions and referrals when necessary.

Who can she help?

  • Children who are withdrawn or anxious
  • Children who are having friendship issues
  • Parents/carers experiencing difficulties in managing their child's behaviour in school.
  • Parents/carers whose children are not attending school or who have been excluded.
  • Parent/carers who may need support on a wide range of issues impacting on their family life i.e. illness, separation, divorce or bereavement.
  • Signposting after school clubs, childcare or holiday activities for families.
  • Parent/carers who are not sure who to talk to about a situation they are facing at school.

Parents/carers, school and children can ask her to become involved. With your consent we will explore the difficulties your child is experiencing and identify the best way forward.


Should a child protection issue be identified, the school is legally bound to follow Government guidelines.

Common Acronyms and Abbreviations

As much as we try not to use acronyms or abbreviations in our documents and letters to parents/carers, they can sometimes creep in.

We are also conscious that documents from the Department for Education and Ofsted often contain shortened versions of words and phrases which are common within education, but you may not come across outside of the sector.

To address this and help readers to understand these documents, you will find a list of common acronyms and abbreviations in this document.
