Parent Support Advisor

Shinfield Schools Parent Support Advisor

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my role of Parent Support Adviser (PSA). My name is Lisa Ward and I am the PSA for both Shinfield Infant and Nursery School and Shinfield St Mary’s Junior School.

My role is to provide support for parents and families. Some of the issues parents want to discuss are: behaviour, bed wetting, communication, eating problems, relationships, work opportunities, bereavement, local activities and facilities, and their child’s development. No question that you may have is too big or small and although I may not have all the answers, I will try to find someone who does.

My contact number is 0778 9480521. I am based at Shinfield St Mary’s Junior School on Tuesdays and Shinfield Infant and Nursery School on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I can also be contacted via the school receptions.

I will be at various school events, such as parent evenings. Any workshops, events or courses will be shared through the school newsletter. Please feel free to pop in and say hello!

I look forward to meeting you and where appropriate, will treat with confidentiality any matters we discuss.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Lisa Ward

Parent Support Adviser
