Project: School Mediation
The Student and Family Support Office (GAAF) is a project promoted by the School/Social Mediation at the Instituto de Apoio à Criança, which, since 1998, has intervened in schools providing a support service, with the aim of helping students solve their problems, combat absenteeism and early school leavers, and establish intervention strategies to combat social exclusion of pupils and their families.
Intervention strategies focused on the student include personal follow-up, in groups and on the playground, student care, support and follow-up of groups/classes, psychological, social and pedagogical support, and referral to other entities.
Other accompaniments are aimed at the family, reinforcing its role as socializing agents for children and young people, and the communication of families with the school.
