Family Support Adviser
Family Support Advisers - what do they do?
Family Support Advisers are there to support you and your child to get the best from school.
Family Support Advisers do this by:
- Offering one to one support
- Listening to parents and carers and giving confidential support and guidance
- Organising regular drop in sessions to meet other parents and carers
- Providing information about other relevant services in Bracknell Forest
- Supporting parents and carers with their own learning opportunities
- Providing access to parenting programmes
- Putting parents and carers in touch with support groups
- Supporting SEN pupils in mainstream classes
You might want to use a Family Support Adviser for issues like these...
- 'My child's behaviour is getting out of hand'
- 'I have lots of questions about being a parent'
- 'I'm worried about the next parent's evening'
- 'I just need someone I can talk to'
- 'Since my partner left me things haven't been the same
- 'I'm really worried about my daughter's schooling this year. Her self esteem is a problem'
What Family Support Advisers aim to achieve:
- To build parents/carers confidence to deal with difficult parenting issues and behaviours.
- To improve the achievements and attendance of children at school.
- To strengthen relationships and communication between home, school & other services.
