Pupil Support Worker
Hi, my name is Gary Fielding and I am the Pupil Support Worker here at St. Paul's. I have spent the last 19 years working with children and young people in a variety of roles.
I spent almost 4 years with Lancashire Children’s Social Care as a Residential Childcare Worker. I then spent 11 years at Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School, first as a Learning Mentor then went on to be a Pastoral Head of Year. My wife and I have been fostering for 8 years.
I have a passion for supporting children and young people to value both themselves and others, to achieve their full potential and to be of support to parents/carers in that process.
Aspects of my role include -
Initiating Early Help Assessments as Lead Professional
Assistant Designated Safeguarding Lead
High School transition support
Mental Health Lead
Linking with agencies and support groups
Well being support for both children, parents/carers and staff
Attending relevant meetings
One to one support for pupils using a range of strategies and interventions
Attending regular relevant training
This list is not a definitive list as every day is different and the role is always developing!
Please feel free to contact me via the school’s phone number or my email firstname.lastname@example.org if you think I can help in any way,
Thank you, Mr Fielding.
