Family Liaison

FAMILY LIAISON OFFICER

Hello my name is Michelle Westlake.  I am the school based Family Liaison Officer. I’m here to listen, offer support, empathise and care.  I am available to work with all parents who need information about school matters as well as requiring help accessing other agencies. I have access to an extensive range of information and can sign-post parents to a variety of services.

Some examples of areas in which I can support parents are:

  • Attendance Issues
  • Behaviour Support
  • Classroom Issues e.g. behaviour/friendships etc
  • Family Learning
  • Family Circumstances affecting your child e.g. parental separation, bereavement etc
  • Free School Meals
  • Friendship Issues
  • Homework Concerns
  • Medical/Health Concerns
  • Offer signposting information to other agencies, e.g. School Nurse, CAMHS, Sure Start Transition Information
  • SATs concerns
  • Transition to Secondary School

Coffee Mornings 
I will organise Coffee Mornings/Afternoons to give parents the opportunity to meet, talk and share concerns.  This time is designed to be a friendly informal session.

“It’s good to have someone to share concerns with.”
“I have appreciated Michelle’s time and understanding.”
