Family Support

We have our parent support adviser, Mrs Alison Thompson, who works for us for 15 hours per week, helping and supporting families in our federation.

A Parent Support Advisor (PSA) is there to help, support and advice parents and carers who have worries or concerns about their children, their family or anything that may affect a family or child.

A PSA could offer support in a range of situation, such as

  • when you may have a worry at home that affects your child or your family
  • giving advice and strategies to help you with your child’s behaviour at home
  • helping you to access services to support your child and you as a family or an individual
  • offering a listening ear and supporting you through a range of difficulties at home or at school
  • any other issue you may have relating to your child that you would like support with

We may not have all the answers, but we might be able to help you work things out, or help you find someone who could help you more.

Cluster SENCO Lead

We have a cluster SENCO lead, looking at supporting and assessing children across the cluster with SEN, as well as co-ordinating provision and support with the SENCOs from each school. This means we can share expertise and give consistency of provision for all children in the cluster with Special Educational Needs.

The role of the cluster SEND lead  is to act as a critical friend and support to SENCOs in participating schools. They are there to offer a different perspective, ideas or to signpost if they are aware of other services the school could engage , as well as being a fellow professional to discuss ideas with.
Individual schools retain the responsibility for the provision for children with SEN and additional needs in schools, and the cluster SENCO is not responsible or accountable for the provision or outcomes for children in any school.

If you have any questions about the provision for your child, then please direct these to your own school SENCO.

Our cluster SENCO lead is Alie Ottey.
