Information and Advice for Parents, Carers and Families

I support ‘The Pewsey Cluster of Schools’ including: Pewsey Primary School; Pewsey Vale School; Rushall CE Primary School; Woodborough CE Primary School; Easton Royal Academy; Burbage Academy and Oare CE Primary School.

My normal working days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Self- referrals can be made directly to the PSA, or they can come through school via the Headteacher, Pastoral Manager or Class-Teacher.

The Parent Support Advisor is an impartial and non-judgmental service which offers flexibility and support. Whether it’s a listening ear…I need some information on…My child is struggling with…I am worried about…I am going through a separation I need help with…

Communication is paramount and I am here to help support parents where at times this has broken down, the home- school- link helps to ensure we are all working together for the best outcome for the family.

Additionally, I offer support with school attendance, school transition, parenting, help with behaviour, signposting to other agencies, home visits, budgeting, routine…
