The staff at Wilby are always willing to offer support to families where they can. If we are unable to help directly, then we will try to find agencies which may be able to help.
Your first point of call could be your child's class teacher or the Head. Our Parent Link Worker, is also available to meet with parents to provide support or signpost relevant agencies. If you would like to speak to them, leave a note in the post box in the playground or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and the staff will contact you to make a mutually convenient appointment.
Rev Chris Pearson is also available to meet with parents. If you would like to contact Rev Chris Pearson, you can contact him on (01933) 226711 or e-mail him at Rector@wilbystmary.org.uk
Parent Partnership Service http://www.npps.info/
Northamptonshire’s Parent Partnership Service provides parents, carers and professionals with impartial advice, support, and information around special educational needs (SEN), exclusion, choosing a school and parent involvement in decision making.
If you are worried that your child may be having difficulties at school, or have any questions around your child’s education, we can support you in a number of ways.
All Parent Partnership Service staff offer impartial, confidential advice and support. We will work together in partnership with parents to ensure they are able to get their views heard by the schools, and Local Authority.
If you find that you have free time and are interested in volunteer work, there are many Family Support Services which rely on volunteers to help them work effectively.

I have been sent some really helpful information which I thought may be of interest to you.
As parents I think we all have times where we wonder... What do I do now?....Am I doing the right thing?.....I really need some help and support with this.
I have been advised of two Parenting Courses that are running in our area, which may provide the answers and support we often wish he could get.
The first is the Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme,) which is run through the Nene Lakes Children's Centre, at Earls Barton Junior School (01604 810260). This programme offers all parents/carers infromation, support and practical answers to everyday parenting concerns.
The other is the Solihull Approach Parenting Group, which will explore issues such as Parenting styles, Developmental needs,Temper Tantrums,Communication, Sleep, Behaviour and having FUN together! This group will start on the 23rd April 2013 and run on subsequent Tuesday mornings for 10 weeks, at Ruskin Infant School (01933 381 600)
