My name is Gemma McKenna and I am the Family Support Worker here at Matchborough 1st School Academy. I work directly for the school so you can come along and speak to me whenever you need to. I run drop in sessions for parents to attend or you can call me on the office number 01527 883880 for a chat.


Being a parent is the hardest job in the world and sometimes issues crop up where you just need a little bit of support. These issues might include but are not limited to:

- Behaviour management

- Emotional wellbeing

- Poor sleeping habits

- Lack of routine

- Separation and divorce

- Parental illness

- Child’s low self esteem 

- Anxiety and stress

- Loss of a loved one


It is hard to seek out support and sometimes as a parent you just don’t know who to turn to. At Matchborough 1st School Academy we hope to make it a little bit easier. You can contact me via the school office or speak directly to me by calling/texting 07710082325. Alternatively fill in the contact form below with you details and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
