Family Support Worker (FSW)

Family Support Worker (FSW)

My name is Samantha Dean, and I am the Family Support Worker at The Rose School.

My role in school is to assist children and their families in securing the support they need. I work with lots of different families for lots of different reasons and sometimes we all need a little extra support. I am here to help with any concerns or questions you may have about your child or family in general, or if you just need to unload about the challenges of being a parent – it is hard! I am not here to judge, I am here to listen, advise and try and help where I can. If I cannot help, I may know someone who can.

I can offer you and your family support on many issues including:

School attendance

Assist in completing paperwork and forms

Referrals to Early Help

Signpost to other services available

Benefits / housing / debt

Parenting support


Transition support

Attendance and support at school and other agency meetings

Access to training courses


All support and advice is confidential although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the schools Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. I am available to talk over the phone or meet face to face by appointment during school hours. I can be contacted through the school office.
