Family Support Worker

We welcome Carole Kelly to the Early help team at Springside.

Carole previously held the role of Class Teacher at Springside and will be particularly familiar to parents in the Butterflies and Dinosaur classes. Carole will work closely with Shazye and will use our website alongside other social media as a method of communicating with families. Here's her own introduction:

Hi all,  

I’m really looking forward to working with our Springside families in my new role, I have worked at the school since 2018 as a teacher but now I’m stepping out of the classroom to work with our families.  Although I am very new to this role, I come with some experience, in addition to teaching I also founded the charity Jolly Josh in memory of my son Joshua who had extensive brain damage and complex medical needs.   As a charity, we support families in the borough who have children with disabilities and/or complex/additional needs, therefore I hope to be able to transfer some of my knowledge and understanding to my new role at Springside.   

If you feel that you may benefit from a Family Support Worker and would like to chat, please email me at
