Hello my name is Pamela Jones-McGill. I am the school-based FLO (Family Liaison Officer). I am here to listen, offer support, empathise and care. I am available to work with all parents who need information about school matters as well as requiring help accessing other agencies. I have access to an extensive range of information and can sign-post parents to a variety of services.
Some examples of areas in which I can support parents are:
- Attendance Issues
- Behaviour Support
- Classroom Issues e.g. behaviour/friendships etc.
- Family Learning
- Family Circumstances affecting your child e.g. parental separation, bereavement etc.
- Free School Meals
- Friendship Issues
- Homework Concerns
- Medical/Health Concerns
- Offer signposting information to other agencies, e.g. School Nurse, CAMHS, Sure Start Transition Information
- SATs concerns
- Transition to Secondary School
I will be part of the Monday coffee mornings to give parents the opportunity to meet, talk and share concerns. This time is designed to be a friendly informal session and give Parents and families an opportunity to contribute their ideas.
There is now a new Worry Box on the wall by the playground doors in the atrium. If you have any worries, school or home, post your worry in the box (there is paper and a pencil on top) and I will chat with you in private as soon as possible.
Worries get much, much bigger if you keep them to yourself!
