Our Support Team
Alison Oakley & Paul Weston
Our support team comprises of two experienced Parent and Family Support Advisors and a skilled Emotional Health Worker. This team collaboratively works with families at Cutcombe First School, Dunster First School, St Dubricius First School, Timberscombe First School and Exford First School.
Role of the Team
Our PFSA team is dedicated to offering assistance in various critical areas. This includes emotional health support to individuals and families dealing with issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, loss and bereavement, anger, parental separation, divorce, and any other concerns impacting a young person's emotional health.
Building a Bridge Between Home and School
The team aims to foster a robust partnership between home and school, working in conjunction with parents and guardians to help each child reach their full potential. Understanding that various family dynamics can influence a child's learning experience, our team is equipped to navigate through these complexities in the best interest of the child.
Guiding You to the Right Resources
In cases where additional professional assistance may be necessary, our team can direct you to the appropriate services. We have established connections with various professional bodies that can offer further help.
A Listening Ear
Sometimes, all you need is someone to listen. Our team is always available to listen to you or your child if you are experiencing difficulties. Whether it's related to bullying, online safety, school refusal, behavioural issues, healthy eating, budgeting, or even feeling isolated, we are here for you.
Support for Parents and Carers
Our team also provides support for parents and carers who wish to return to work or further their education. We understand that this transition can be challenging and offer guidance and resources to ensure a smooth process.
