School Liaison and Support Officer - Mrs Bevan

My name is Mrs Bevan and I work as the School Liaison & Support Officer

 

The aim of the School Liaison & Support Officer role is to ensure that all children enjoy school and are happy and secure.

 

I can help by providing: 

  • One to one support and advice.
  •  Nurture / reason specific sessions with children.
  •  Support and advice to parents / Carers.
  •  Signposting to other agencies including school nurse , Malachi and Local Support Team referrals.

My job role includes some of the following

 

  • Offering support/nurture in school.

During term time I will work in partnership with parents/carers, school staff and other agencies to support families, aiming to reduce current issues and prevent future difficulties.

 

Children learn what they live: 

  • If children live with criticism they learn to condemn.
  •  If children live with hostility they learn to fight.
  •  If children live with ridicule they learn to be shy.
  •  If children live with shame they learn to feel guilty.
  •  If children live with encouragement they learn confidence.
  •  If children live with appreciation they learn to appreciate.
  •  If children live with fairness they learn justice.
  •  If children live with security they learn to have faith.
