Family Liason Officer support
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.

‘Coffee and Conversations’ group
Miss Sage and Mrs Ross are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a ‘Coffee and Conversations’ group on Wednesdays 2.30pm to 3.10pm at Brenzett CE Primary School.
The aim of the group is to provide wellbeing support that will bring the school community together, support families and enable parents and carers to make new friends. Myself and Mrs Ross are available to discuss and issues or concerns you may have.
We will be having guests speakers once a month. There will be a small craft activity each week, should individuals wish to participate. There will not be a fee for the group, but if you wish to donate to help towards the cost of tea/coffee/craft supplies, we would be very grateful.
Dates for the sessions are:
12th Jan – Start
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
