Local Schools Partnerships

My name is Leigh Cole and I am the Manager of the HABS Local Schools Partnership based within Wormley Primary School in Broxbourne.

The HABS team is one of 19 Local Schools Partnerships that provide high-quality services for children, young people and their families in Wormley, Turnford, Broxbourne and Hoddesdon. We are a local organisation that works with school-aged children to address social, emotional and health issues that are barriers to learning; we play a significant role in the lives of many young people and their families.



We are employed by Hertfordshire County Council and 19 local schools to provide support for children and families at risk of breakdown.
