Everyone has times when they wish someone was there to offer help when they really need it. There can be times in a child’s life when things get in the way of their learning. A child might struggle for a variety of reasons; they might be experiencing feelings of anxiety, anger or worry.

Nicky can offer you support on an emotional and practical level so that you feel more confident in supporting your child.

You can speak to Nicky on the playground or at the school gate for a quick chat, or if you prefer, arrange a more suitable time and place to meet. This can be in your own home or in Nicky's office at school.

Alternatively, Nicky can be contacted via email or by telephone. Nicky is available during school holiday periods as well as during term time.
