I’m Nichole Mulkeen and I am the Attendance and Family Outreach Manager at Lowerplace. I have been part of this school team for 13 years and have experience of working with children & parents in a pastoral care role. I am on hand to support families through a wide range of issues.
I am a CAF Champion and work closely with families going through the CAF process. Alongside this, I also have Safeguarding and Child Protection responsibilities, and represent the school through the ‘Child in Need’ and Child Protection process.
We understand that many families go through times which can often make balancing school and home-life difficult. Often, these times can have an impact on the emotional welfare of children. At Lowerplace, we offer many different pathways of support which we hope will help to remove any barriers that your family may encounter during your child’s life at school.
An example of some of the areas I can support families:
Mental & physical health needs
New starts & settling in
Getting to school on time & good school attendance
Housing & finance
Family & relationship difficulties
Domestic Abuse/Violence support
Bereavement & loss
Training, education & employment
In-house interventions – Learning Mentor, SEN, Behaviour
Sign-posting/referrals to other agencies
If you would like to see me to discuss any matters close to your heart – big or small – then you are welcome to telephone me or drop in to the KS1 office.
No appointment necessary.
