Woodmill High School

Family Link Worker

Hi. I’m Katie Body, the Family Link Worker here at Woodmill.  My role is to provide support to pupils and their families in a way that enables pupils and their families to engage positively with the school.

I have an extensive background in crisis support, family wellbeing and residential care settings, as well as having enjoyed roles within the Prison Service and the Royal Navy. This means that I have a lot of experience of life and I am able to help find solutions to any problem, big or small.

As a mum, and former Woodmilll pupil, I know the struggles that we are all facing in our community, after covid and now the cost of living crisis. I fully understand the conflict that our young people face growing up in the modern times, but also from the parent/carer perspective where what we want is the best for our children but struggle to help them reach this. I am not here to judge or to pass comments, but I can help to support and look for ways forward, together. Sometimes a friendly face and a chat can help to remove some of the worries that we have.

Feel free to make contact with me directly via the school office, or via your child/s guidance teacher.
