Supporting families

Family Room Pic

Hello Parents and Carers,

My name is Zowie Glen and I am your Parent Support Advisor here at Wensum Junior School.

My role involves a wide range of support, including general parenting advice, behaviour management, setting routine and positive boundaries, managing finances, addiction & recovery, housing issues, bereavement and separation.

I am also part of the School Attendance and Safeguarding Team at Wensum Junior.

We always try our best to support our families and children in house; however, we also work closely with many local services and organisations that can help us to help you. We can work together to refer to the right service at the right time.

Please do get in touch with any questions or concerns that you may have.

I am available:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 8.30 am to 3.00 pm

Please call or text: 07936914045


Alternatively, you can leave a message at the School Office on: 01603 620877.

I look forward to hearing from you.
