Parent Support

What is a Parent Support Advisor?

Parenting isn’t an easy job, and at times things can get tough. Like every other parent you want what’s best for your child.

Parent support advisors are there to help you deal with any worries or concerns about how your child is doing at school. We may not have all the answers, but we might be able to help you work them out.

What sort of worries or concerns?

We can help to prevent problem behaviour from becoming more difficult.

We can have regular meetings with you, at home or in school.

We can help find other services or agencies to help families.

We can support you when you meet teachers or other professionals.

We can help you and your child when they are starting school, or moving between schools.

We can help you get the best out of school life.

We can help you understand what your child learns: annual reviews, special projects, homework, coursework or tests.

We can support you when attendance or exclusion is cause for concern.

Our Parent Support Advisor is Angie Barker. She is based at Alderman Peel High School and can be contacted on 0793 444 2417.
