PARENT SUPPORT ADVISOR
Schools are places where parents leave their children on a daily basis with an expectation that they will be educated by staff, who are trained to do just that.
Up and down the country children present teachers with issues and behaviours often linked to issues within the home.
Fundamentally teachers are not trained to deal with many of the issues that they encounter in the classroom.
Our PSA service works with parents, helping to bridge the gap between home and school. With our bespoke approach, it's our experience that being an outside independent agency often helps parents to work with us in an honest and transparent way, leading to real measurable change.
Upon the conclusion of our work with a family, we will leave the School with a Family Support Plan (FSP) to enable that there is continued support in place to sustain and encourage long-term change
If you think families in your school could benefit from such a service contact us now! This service can be spot purchased by your School on an As & When basis.
