Parental Support

Mrs Jen Marshall

Family Link Worker

My name is Jen Marshall and I am the Family Link Worker. I have worked at Monkton Park School as a Teaching Assistant for the last 5 years and in that time I have built strong relationships with pupils and families in our community.


My role is to work with parents and children enabling them to thrive at home and school by offering friendly, non-judgmental advice and information on a wide range of issues including:


  • Promoting positive behaviour

  • Routines and bedtimes

  • Attendance and punctuality

  • Signposting to other agencies, including the school nurse and parenting groups

  • Bereavement

  • Parental conflict and separation


I can be contacted via;


The school office: 01249 652395




Most mornings you can find me on the school gate for a friendly chat.
