About me:

 

My name is Colette Lighthill. I have been a Nursery Nurse for 26 years. I have worked in Nurseries, Schools, and in Health Visiting offering family support to children and families for over 12 years. I am passionate about my job and would be delighted to work with you soon.

My role is to offer support with:

  • Late arrivals and to encourage punctuality

  • Managing attendance (absences from school) in order to achieve 100%

  • Signpost parents or carers to services who can provide further support

  • Children through guidance and coping in times of change and stress

  • Practical ideas to support children with behavioural difficulties

  • Family stresses

  • Families who require a food Bank voucher

  • Strategies around completing homework

  • Advice on improving parenting skills

  • Any parental concerns

  • Children who would benefit from additional support

  • Providing advice on how to establish boundaries at home

  • Families in crisis

  • Engaging families in activities which support children’s learning

  • Facilitating a Healthy Eating Group every Wednesday lunchtime

  • A group where children can express their concerns in a one to one session. Held on a Monday and Friday lunchtime

 

My office is located in the music room. I am available Monday to Friday (term time only) 8.30-4.00pm.

 

I look forward to meeting you and working with your children at St Mary Magdalene Catholic School.

 

Sugar - This was my first display board making children, staff and parents aware of the amount of sugar in food. The children found this very interesting. I hope it educated them to make informed decisions about foods that have high sugar content.

All You Need Is - This interactive board was made with the children's help. Some children wrote positive statements in all the areas. Many children made use of it and reported how beneficial it was.
