The Inclusion and Pastoral Team

At Sandfield, we strive to support all of our families as best we can.

Working together to support children and their families our Home School Worker, Lucy Lidstrom and SENDCo, Laura Kennedy, are available to meet with parents and carers in school.  They can be contacted by sending a message via Studybugs or by sending an email to

The Sandfield Inclusion and  Pastoral Team  is here to support pupils and their families.

Some things they can help with are:

  • Supporting families to understand their child’s additional needs
  • Helping parents and carers who are experiencing difficulties with their child’s behaviour
  • Signposting families who are reacting to change, such as parental separation or bereavement
  • Working alongside parents and carers whose children are reluctant to attend school
  • Supporting parents and carers  on a wide range of issues or difficulties impacting on their family life e.g. illness, domestic violence, disability, financial difficulties
  • Liaising with professionals (e.g. Speech & Language support) and helping parents navigate Surrey’s Local Offer website
  • Providing information on Young Carers and runs a group for Young Carers in school called “Time for Me”
  • Supporting parents for whom English is not their first language (EAL)
  • Accessing support groups, adult learning and parenting courses
