Parent Support Advisor

Parenting can be hard and sometimes things can get tough. As a parent/carer you want what is best for your child.

Our Parent Support Advisor is here to listen and support your family to deal with issues or concerns you may be facing. We may not have all the answers but together we can explore ways forward.

A Parent Support Adviser can:
•Meet to talk where you feel most comfortable.
•Help you see what you are doing well as a parent.
•Give you hints and tips about general parenting issues.
•Find Services and other Agencies available to help you and your family and encourage good attendance.

Foster positive relationships between home and school.

These are just some of the things that can be offered!

Please contact the school office or your child's class teacher for more information.
