Reminder it is World Book Day Thursday 3rd March

Family Support Advisor (FSA)

We are still here to support parents however we need to make some adjustments to the ways we meet with parents at the start of the September term due to the ongoing Covid measures in place at school. Mrs Dent  can make arrangements to speak with parents over the phone or through virtual meetings.
Please read the newsletters emailed out regularly to parents for updates and useful information to support you and your family. If you know of any resources or organisations that can also support parents and children please let Mrs Dent know and we will share the information with our school community. Thank you.
Hello my name is Ros Dent, your Family Support Advisor at Oakwood Primary Academy. I am here to support you in anything you may face or encounter as your child takes their journey through our school. This is done in an impartial, non-judgemental way, allowing you and your family to get the most out of your child's time at Oakwood.

FSAs work in partnership for families’ and children’s well being.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Being a parent is one of the most fulfilling things we’ll ever do: yet it is also one of the hardest and we can all do with a little help now and then.

I can offer you:

· A frontline face to answer everyday queries and concerns.

· On site independent and impartial information on any issues or concerns you have.

· Support in meetings both in school and with other agencies.

· Help with any paperwork or forms you may have to do.

· Signposting you to other services available.

· Supporting you with transition periods.

· Offering parenting and adult learning opportunities.

· Discussing special educational needs.

· Passing your views, praises and concerns to the school.

· Developing activities and opportunities to meet with other parents in the school including regular newsletters and holiday activity information.

· I also offer support for service families including a monthly family activity group and  we are part of the city MKC Heroes.

Please contact me on the office number to make an appointment  :  01752 775478

We believe that the success of all our children is enhanced by the positive partnership between home and school. Every child needs our joint support in order for them to achieve their potential.

"The bond between a child and their parent is the most critical influence on a child’s life"
