Mrs Jo Mannion

Family Liaison Officer

Our Family Liaison Officer is here to help build and maintain these relationships. We are on an exciting journey working in partnership with our parents and we very much look forward to you joining us.

Home Visits

Our Family Liaison Officer can offer home visits to discuss ways in which further support can be offered to you and your family. We use a coordinated approach though early help assessment. From this, supportive links can be created within our internal school community and with external agencies. Examples of support that you might want to discuss are: Attendance, Behaviour, Housing, Mental health, Financial and Safeguarding.

Active Parents Programmes

Our Active Parents’ programmes are engaging ways in which we can break down the barriers that parents/carers often experience at the secondary school gate and enable us to enjoy a shared partnership.

Contact Jo for more information on any of our Active Parents programmes:

  • Active Parents: Get Cooking

    ‘Active Parents’ is a great opportunity for you to engage with your child’s learning in the classroom. There will be opportunities to discuss with staff ways in which we can support your child to be successful in school, celebrate and reward their achievements as well as opportunities to signpost you to resources that can further support. Together, we can cook something tasty for you to take home and enjoy with your family over the weekend. We look forward to seeing you there

  • Time for Me – Nurture Programme

    Come and take some time out for yourself. Chat with us over a hot drink and find out about the new Murture Programme that we are going to be offering to parents/carers

  • Active Parents: BOOST

    BOOST is a structured course designed to boost mood, thinking, relaxation, assertiveness, motivation, sleep and confidence. In these sessions you will learn lots of skills and tips for coping with problems, managing your feelings and will help you to make plans for doing more of the things that make you feel good

Young Careers

A Young Carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition, such as a disability, illness or mental health condition. This might involve extra jobs around the house such as cooking, cleaning, or physically helping someone. Some children give a lot of physical and emotional help. Our weekly Young Carers Club gives our Young Carers a place to feel supported.
