Family Support

Introducing  Gillian Kent, our Family Support Worker


At Marston Moreteyne VC School, we understand that many children and families at some point experience difficult times. If you have worries or concerns, you can always talk to the class teacher, as they know your child best. However, for whatever reason, you might not feel able to, or there may be other problems, which you may need some support with, and in these circumstances, we are available to help.


How can you make contact with me?

We work during term time from 8.30 a.m. – 3.30 p.m. Tuesday – Thursday but we are happy to arrange another time to talk if school hours are difficult for you.  You can contact us by: 


  • Email us directly at
  • Telephone the school office and leave a message.
  • Speak to your child’s teacher and ask them to ask us to call you.
  • If you would like to speak to someone from the Family Support Team urgently out of the above hours, then phone or email the school office.

What can I help with?

  • I listen and appreciate parents/carers issues and offer suggestions and advice for individuals and families on behaviour management, boundaries, routines, school attendance, e-safety, healthy eating to name a few.
  • I can also refer and signpost to other services available within Central Bedfordshire.
  • I work with, and support, families during key school transition, including newcomers and moving onto other schools or secondary school.
  • I work with families who are going through difficult times including relationship breakdown, bereavement, mental well-being, financial hardship, housing issues and support families when applying for various types of grants.

Need Help with your Energy Costs?

Here's a list of energy suppliers who offer grants to their customers:

If  residents can’t get a grant from their own supplier, they might be able to get a grant from the British Gas Energy Trust. These grants are available to anyone - you don’t have to be a British Gas customer to be eligible.
