Introduction
For over a hundred years, school social workers have been providing a
critical link between school, home, and community. The school social work
profession has consistently focused on coordinating the efforts of schools,
families, and communities toward helping students improve their
academic achievement and social, emotional, and behavioral competence
by using its unique perspective of viewing the person in his or her
environment. School social workers seek to ensure equitable education
opportunities; ensure that students are mentally, physically, and
emotionally present in the classroom; and promote respect and dignity for
all students.

Parents guidance and counseling
The school counsellor's first professional responsibility is to the students. The

the school setting, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are the focus in planning and
delivering a developmental, comprehensive guidance and counselling program.
Collaboration with parents in the best interest of students is a key activity of
school counsellors.
The focus of school counselling is on the personal, social, educational, and
career development of the student.
Providing parents, as appropriate, with accurate information in a caring
manner is part of working with minors in a school setting.
The open sharing of guidance education activities with parents is separate from

Working with students to keep parents appropriately informed without

work.
School Social Workers are the link between the home, school and community in providing direct
as well as indirect services to students, families and school personnel to promote and support
students' academic and social success.
All of life’s situations interact with each other. For instance, by addressing a student’s
personal/social needs through counselling, the school counsellor simultaneously teaches
resiliency skills and affects the student’s readiness for educational challenges.
As a result of such interrelationships, the school counsellor supports the integration of guidance
and counselling services to address school and community needs.
The school counsellor develops a comprehensive, developmental guidance and counselling
program with their school team to meet the needs for their context and specific school
population.
This development process includes identifying needs, implementing and monitoring programs, as
well as adjusting plans based on the developmental needs of students. Regular evaluation of the
plan and its implementation are important to ensure the school and community are being served.

Dealing with multiple, interrelated concerns, such as poverty, child

requires multiple and interrelated solutions.
Promoting well-being, resilience, and protective factors and empowering
families, communities, and schools also requires the concerted effort of all
stakeholders.
Schools are more effective and caring places when they are an integral and
positive part of the community. This plays out as enhanced academic
performance, fewer discipline problems, higher staff morale.
Conclusion
School social workers play a vital role in addressing the various needs of
students in an educational setting. School counsellors are staff members
who work together with other certified teachers and clinical professionals
to increase opportunities for success in the lives of all learners. School
counsellors provide education, guidance, and counselling to all students in
the school through activities. School-Based Family Counseling (SBFC) is an
integrated approach to mental health intervention that focuses on both
school and family in order to help children overcome personal problems
and succeed at school. Not all social work service delivery in schools can be
seen as school social work. A service can be called school social work only
if the primary goal is achievement of student learning potential and
involve particular methods of working. These include coordinating and
influencing the efforts of the school, family and community to achieve this
goal.

  • 19. Conclusion School social workers play a vital role in addressing the various needs of students in an educational setting. School counsellors are staff members who work together with other certified teachers and clinical professionals to increase opportunities for success in the lives of all learners. School counsellors provide education, guidance, and counselling to all students in the school through activities. School-Based Family Counseling (SBFC) is an integrated approach to mental health intervention that focuses on both school and family in order to help children overcome personal problems and succeed at school. Not all social work service delivery in schools can be seen as school social work. A service can be called school social work only if the primary goal is achievement of student learning potential and involve particular methods of working. These include coordinating and influencing the efforts of the school, family and community to achieve this goal.
