Family Footings

Working in partnership with everyone that has involvement with our learners is key to our ethos of ‘putting children and families first’.

Our Family Footings Facilitators:

  • Work closely with the learners at Quest Academy and their families to ensure that their opinions and perspectives are reflected in how we support them at school
  • Introduce families to the benefits of using person centred thinking tools and other skills to assist parents/carers when they are interacting with professionals involved in their children’s lives.
  • Support families through the life of the school. They offer flexible, honest and accessible support.

You can contact our Family Footings Facilitators, on 01788 593 112.
