Children & Families Officer- Mrs Donna Duffy

All of our children have a right to grow up safe from harm

Donna Duffy, our Children and Families Officer is always there to:


  • Ensure all children are able to access and benefit from the best educational opportunities by supporting parents/carers with their individual needs.

  • Promote positive links between home, school, local organisations and

       agencies so that families receive the best care and support

       that is available to them.

  • Improve the wellbeing of our children and their families.


Home & School:

We know how important it is to have a strong, positive relationship between home and school. If you have a problem and you’re not sure who or how to talk about it, then Donna is willing to listen, offer advice and support you.

Family Matters:

Donna provides information on various organisations that can support families through difficult times such as bereavement, separation, unemployment and illness.


​​​Challenging Behaviour:

At the Grange, we understand that being a parent is not easy, it’s a tough job and not everyone can be expected to get it right all of the time. If your child is presenting challenging behaviour, please don’t suffer in silence. There is support out there for you. Pop in for a chat with Donna and see what support is available to you.

Transition to secondary education:

The transition from primary to secondary is a big one and can be very daunting for children and parents.  If you feel your child would benefit from extra transition, please contact Donna.

If you as a parent would like advice of different secondary schools or the applications do not hesitate to get in touch.


Money Matters:

Donna can provide support with benefits, support from local charities, accessible grants and agencies that support families on low incomes.
