Family Support Worker

My name is Laura Hopper and I am the Family and Student Support Worker (FSSW) at Stocksfield Avenue Primary School. I am currently on Maternity Leave and Sam Dixon is covering my role at the same times and on the same contact number as the details below.


My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to families. I can help you with any worries you may have in relation to your child’s education, behaviour and wellbeing. I am also here as just someone to talk to!


I can meet with families at home or School. All support is confidential and impartial. I may not have all the answers, but hopefully I can help you work out how to find them!


Support could include
• Linking with school to voice any concerns about your child including attending School meetings with you
• 1:1 support for young people around issues such as self esteem, friendships, bullying, and family breakdown.
• Support for parents/carers to improving behaviour at home and school
• Signposting and help to access to services in Newcastle such as holiday and after school activities
• Support filling in forms e.g. benefits/housing/SEN
• Help for parents/carers with career and personal development and access to training and workshops including in school


Get in touch:
I am normally based in School on a Monday and Wednesday morning or Friday afternoon but can be contacted throughout the week.


Call / text me directly on 07970740991 or through the School office.
