Hunsbury Park Primary




Hunsbury Park Primary School’s Children and Family Support.


We’d like to introduce ourselves to you all.

We are Pam Fennell and Claire Riley. We have been working at Hunsbury Park for a few years now and many of you will already know us. We are now pleased to be able to offer more support and advice to the whole family, working closely with Charlie Vickers (SENCo) who manages our base for SEMH (Social Emotional and Mental Health).

We offer a breakfast club and an early bird settling in session for invited children only. We offer nurture groups within the Wellbeing remit but many children access the centre for individual and group based sessions on a termly basis.

We support families and children in a number of different ways:

We can listen and appreciate parent issues, offering suggestions or sign posting to organisations that we believe can help.

Transition support, which includes moving between classes, phases and schools including secondary.

Development of pupil self-esteem, protective behaviours, confidence, anger management and anxiety.

Friendship issues and bullying concerns as well as our in- school “Worry box”.

Family issues, parent separation, divorce, bereavement, new baby in the family, new relationship, financial advice (signposting), school uniform, health advice, (puberty, Mental health, hygiene)

Please feel free to contact us at the school and ask for us by name if you feel you would like an appointment.


Keeping Safe at HPPS

  • Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
  • The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Dan York (Head teacher).
  • The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead are Mrs Jo Fantarrow and Mrs Helen Bambridge.

When coming into HPPS please remember:

  • Personal mobile phones are NOT allowed to be used or available for use whilst working with a child, group or class. This is to safeguard both the child/ren and you.  This is a non-negotiable rule.
  • Visitors or staff who do not have full DBS clearance wear a YELLOW lanyard.  This means they are NOT allowed to work unsupervised with a pupil or group.
