Family Liaison

Mrs Bailey yma!

I am the new Family Liaison officer for Cyfarthfa Park Primary School. My main job is to support and help families so that their children can participate fully in home and school activities in order to achieve their full potential.

How to get in touch.

The sort of things I can help with.

Attendance

We want your child in school, on time every single day!

If your child is ill and cannot attend you must ring the school to let us know how long they will be away. If there is a medical appointment we would like evidence of this, a letter or an appointment card.

We strongly discourage taking your children on holiday in term time and we monitor this very closely. We are asked to provide information on holidays and lateness by the School Governing Body and the local authority who are responsible for issuing fixed penalty notices.

If you intend to take your children on holiday during term time, you must request an absence form from school.

Non Attendance will be challenged!

We want the best for your child, and to us that means seeing them in school everyday.

Pupil Welfare & Well being

I am a trained ELSA (Emotional literacy support assistant) and deliver support in the infants department. If you have concerns about your child's well-being I am a good person to contact.

I can help put families in touch with outside organisations who help provide family support and reassurance in times of stress or worry.

I can organise Parent support, this can be in the form of group or or 1:1 sessions. These sessions can help with a varied range of difficulties ranging from understanding children's play, development and behaviour, to help with ADHD and ASD diagnosis.

I can also help you fill in any forms that will support children and families. These can include, referral forms, forms for funding such as Free School Meals.


Additional Learning Needs

I can help in the referral process for children with ALN.








Child Protection & Safeguarding

I am often present in meetings with outside agencies to provide information about children's attendance and attainment in school. This presence ensures that this aspect of a child's life is impartially represented.
