Family Liason Officer support
My name is Miss Sage and I am the Family Liaison Officer at Brenzett CE Primary School. My role at this school is to support pupils and families with any concerns or worries. I am always here to listen if you need an informal chat or to talk things through over a coffee or a cup of tea. I am aware of services/provision or resources that available in the area and am able to give you information or make any referrals needed. I am here to support pupils emotionally, if it is identified they need this support. I also run the Little Explorers Toddler group on Tuesday mornings 9-10am (add link) and a Coffee and Conversation Group on Wednesdays afternoons 2.10pm-3.10pm (add link).
Please contact me by calling the school number (01797 344335) and pressing option 2, there is a voicemail facility if I am unavailable or emailing me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I also stand by the school gate at school drop off and pick up so please come and find me if you need to speak to me about anything at all.
Below is a link for a district directory of services in the Ashford, Dover and Folkestone & Hythe area. Some support services may need a referral via the School, so please come in and see Miss Sage, so it can be discussed further. There are lots of useful links regarding activities, charities, mental health support, Kent County Council Services and many others.
