Social Workers In Schools
School social workers are an integral link between school, home, and community in helping students achieve academic success. They work directly with school administrations as well as students and families, providing leadership in forming school discipline policies, mental health intervention, crisis management, and support services. As part of an interdisciplinary team to help students succeed, school social workers also facilitate community involvement in the schools while advocating for student success.
Our community and social workers have many years of experience providing individualised plans to support children and families who have diverse needs. We work in schools across Gisborne urban area and western rural schools.
