Family Worker



Hi my name is Kath McBeth and I am the family worker at Northern Saints Primary School.  As we all know children don’t come with a handbook, each child is unique and each can present their own range of challenges. As a family support worker I can offer you or your family practical advice and guidance on a wide range of these challenges by providing: 

  • A listening ear
  • Individual support
  • The opportunity to meet other parents in small groups
  • A range of parenting courses
  • Tools, skills and ideas to support you with any challenges you are facing at home or within school
  • Help with signposting and referrals to outside agencies

I work closely with all the staff in school and a wide variety of outside agencies to provide the right support for all of our students and their families. Please come and find me for a chat, if I’m not in school just ask one of the school staff and they will point you in the right direction. Alternatively you can contact me on 0191 9171685 extension 4 and we can arrange a time to meet.

And please remember this quote, "There's no such thing as a perfect parent.  So just be a real one." (Sue Atkins)
