Aiming High Learning for Life

Our Family Worker

Hello,

My name is Gail and I am the Family Worker based in our fantastic new building that is named Hepworth within the grounds of Putnoe Primary. My role is to offer support to both children and parents who might be experiencing difficulties. I have been working and supporting families for many years now and I have been employed within Bedford for the past 9 years + so I have knowledge of many local organisations that can also offer support.

Please feel free to come and have a chat or to make an appointment to meet with me at school, or I can visit you at home. My contact details are: -

  • You can ask at the office to see if I am available or
  • You can call me direct on 01234 322051 or
  • You can call me or text me on my work mobile, which is 07716 855 719
