Parent Support

As the Parent Support Advisor at St John’s, my role is mainly about supporting families to get the very best from school by providing support, advice and information. I can help you with any worries you may have in relation to your child’s education, behavior, attendance or any concerns you may have about general family life. You can normally find me before and after school in the playground, or if I’m not there, ask someone in the office to leave a message for me.

I am here every day and always happy to talk to you!

Please have a look at my blog to find out more about how we can support you.
