Vulnerable Families


At St Helen's we understand that every family is different and any family can become vulnerable at any time. It is my job to make sure that if a family finds themselves in this position that we do all we can to ensure that limit the effect on the children in our school and their social and academic progress.

My name is Francesca Gibbons and I am the Family Liaison Officer here at St.Helen's. I started here in September 2016 after working in a children's centre and I have to say I love my job. I am a mum of 2 children myself and know how hard the job of parenting can be. My aim is to ensure that all of our children and their families get the best support we can offer so that all our children reach their full potential and feel valued.

I am often out and about on the playground, but if you need some support or feel your child does, please do not hesitate to contact me either through the school office, or by phoning 01473 251333 and asking to make an appointment, or by emailing:

I am always around to help where I can.
