Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,
I am Nicola Mackinnon and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am the Family Liaison Officer (FLO) for the school and am here for you!
I have worked at Longwick C of E Primary School for over five years, working across all age groups. Many of you know me already.
In my role as Family Liaison Officer, I can be a listening ear and offer support, advice and guidance to parents/carers and families around specific issues you may be struggling with. For example:
Being worried about your child’s behaviour.
Being worried about your child ‘s emotional or social wellbeing.
Support around adjusting to changes within the family home.
Helping them with anxiety and building self-esteem.
Support and sign post to more specific and targeted services in the local community.
As well as my supporting children and families role, I will be supporting the school to promote good attendance. Following the months of lockdown, returning to school is a bigger challenge for both children and parents, we are here to reassure you and help each child to continue to settle into their new class. Therefore, if you are struggling to get your child into school, please contact me to see if I can offer you support and prevent this escalating.
If you want to contact me, please email – email@example.com, or catch me on the main playground from 8:35 every morning.
Please keep an eye on our school website for local information about groups and events which could support you and your child.
