Parent Support Advisor & Pupil Wellbeing Officer (PSA)
My name is Charlotte Wood and I am your new Parent Support Advisor and Pupil Wellbeing Officer here at Holy Rood Catholic Primary School. Having worked in education over the past five years I have a wealth of experience of supporting children and families.
As your Parent Support Advisor, my role is to support you as parents/carers to help your children gain as much as possible from their school life.
Parenting is not an easy job and we can be faced with many challenges – homework can be daunting, finances are often stretched to the limit and problematic behaviour can be very upsetting. I am here to help you deal with any worries or concerns you may have about your child and to help you tackle any home issues that are making school life difficult for you and your family. If I cannot help you I can refer you to specialist agencies or support services if you wish.
In addition, I will be supporting your children in school with any social, emotional or mental health issues they may be experiencing, which could be impacting upon their learning and therefore their school life. Group work and interventions will aim to support and encourage the children to build a strong sense of wellbeing, self-esteem and self-worth.
I am available for a quick chat on the playground before school Monday –Thursday and after school Wednesday and Thursday. Please contact the main school office should you wish to arrange an appointment with me.
I am hoping to host coffee mornings fortnightly on Wednesdays, for parents and carers to come and have a quick cuppa, ask any questions and meet other parents.
The first coffee morning will be held on 25th September 9 – 10am.
I look forward to meeting you all.
