Miss Marie Jennings, Family Worker
My role is to engage and encourage families in working in partnership with the school and to improve outcomes of their children. Parents are their child’s main teacher in life and by working together we can make a difference! I am available for parents and carers who want to chat about anything that’s worrying them or for help with issues that you are not sure how to tackle. If I don’t know the answers I will always do my best to signpost you to someone that can help you. If you need support please feel free to come and see me during the ‘Drop In’ sessions. Alternatively you can call me if you have any further questions or concerns or would like to arrange a convenient time for a chat on 01582 573641.
There is a Family Worker drop in on the 1st Wednesday of every month! This is where families can pop in to see me for advice, signposting, help with filling in forms etc or to ask about our activities.

I have worked at The Ferrars Academy now for thirteen years. As well as working with families I am also a Midday Supervisor in the school, which gives me the opportunity to get to know most of the children. I run all the activities with families in the Round Room and coordinate the running of the crèche facilities that we provide which includes after school clubs. I have three children and four grandchildren of my own who keep me busy at weekends.
