Family Support Lead

Dear Parent/Carer,


I would like to inform you about the type of support, advice and sign posting I am able to offer and how to access it.


My role acts as a link between home and School and to work in partnership with parents/carers and School staff.


I am able to offer advice, guidance and support on the following….


  • Understanding curriculum and school procedures
  • Attendance and behaviour issues
  • Information on how to be more involved in School, e.g. Parent Teachers association(PTA), becoming a volunteer around fundraising or in school
  • Concerns around yours or your child’s health or any special needs they may have
  • Parenting or relationship difficulties
  • Counselling around personal issues or debt related issues
  • Advice on housing or income related concerns
  • Accessing hardship grants


The above list is not exhaustive, so if you are in doubt please just ask. If I cannot directly help I will find someone who can.


Contact me on 07591663267 or email alternatively, join me for a cuppa every Wednesday between 9-10am in the Orangery.


I look forward to meeting you.


Shan Sheppard
