Family Engagement


Name: Michelle Sandham

My name is Michelle Sandham, I am the Family Engagement Lead at our school.

As a parent myself, and someone who has worked with families for twenty years, I understand the challenges that parents and carers face daily.

My role in school is to provide excellent home / school links through developing opportunities for parent and carer engagement in school, including engagement in their child’s learning journey.

I work with charities and organisations within the area to provide support and advice to families within our school community, working with you to identify services and resources that may be useful.  I can assist you with any paperwork that needs to be completed or any referrals and requests for further support.

If you wish to speak with me, please call in to school, telephone me, or email me, I will be happy to discuss any concerns or worries you may have, or we can arrange a meeting to look any additional support you or your child may need.

I am in school Monday – Thursday from 8.30am, and from 8am on Friday and available for chats, drop-ins, appointments and if needed, home visits.  I am often found at the front of school in the mornings or at home time, or can be contacted on the phone number or email address below.
