All children receive Universal Services, however some children will need extra support in order to be healthy, safe and to achieve their potential.
Support can be found on the Gloucestershire County Council website: Early Help
Parent Support Advisor
Our PSA, Mrs Tracy Baker, is available to all parents and carers of children at Blockley School. Her role is to provide friendly, confidential and non-judgmental support and advice on family and school matters. She can also help with Adult Learning, Counselling, Parenting Skills, Children’s Centres, Health Services and a range of further support options. Mrs Baker comes into school every week and you’re welcome to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment. There is no charge for this service.
Our School Dog, Margot
Every Friday our school dog, Margot, comes in to school with Mrs Baker.
It has been shown that through contact with a dog, children can benefit both educationally and emotionally, increasing their understanding of responsibility and developing empathy and nurturing skills. In addition to these benefits, children take great enjoyment from interaction with a dog.
Margot is a Labradoodle, chosen for her temperament and her hypoallergenic properties. She has been specially trained to work with children and she will be introduced slowly to new pupils.
