Family Support

Hello. My name is Steve Dowling and I am your new Family Support Worker at Lowerhouse Junior School.  Previous to this new appointment, I was a leaning mentor at Ightenhill Primary School.  I have also been a teaching assistant and lunchtime welfare assistant.  I have not always worked in education – my first career was 20 years in retail management.

I live with Amanda and we have two boys aged 9 and 12.  I therefore know how challenging parenting is.  My role in school is to support children`s development, particularly their emotional and social development.

I pride myself on being fair, approachable and non-judgemental. You can test this out by having a chat with me!  I will be available in person from 8.45 am - 9.05 am every morning outside the school reception.

I look forward to meeting you, even if it just to say hello.

You can also contact me on: 07833 584029
