“I am here to provide support and help for all families that need it. Working together is the best way we can help our children achieve.”   My name is Claire Woodman-Smith and I have recently joined Stoke Bishop School as the Family Link Worker. I have worked as a teacher in Bristol for the last 9 years, both at a local mainstream school and at a specialist provision for children with behaviour and special educational needs. I also have several years experience of supporting families and am a parent myself.    Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs but is, at times, one of the most difficult. The recent pandemic has also put many added pressures on families. I am available to work directly with you in supporting your child and your family by offering friendly, non-judgment, active support and information.      
What I can offer: · Help with how to support your child’s learning. · Support you when attendance or behaviour is a concern. · Assist with any language barriers your family or child may have.

I can be contacted during school hours (Mon—Thurs). I will also be in the playground in the morning.   Appointments can be made with the school office. Just call in – 0117 3772173 or please email me directly on
