Parent Support 

Welcome to our Pastoral team page, where you can meet the team and find out about our roles, as well as some useful information and links to support that’s available from home.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need us – we are here to help both you and your child(ren) however we can! We have a new team mobile number 07873508916 (but don’t worry if you’ve contacted us on the old one for now as we’re hanging onto it until the end of the school year).

My role as FLO is to make you aware of opportunities to be involved in school life, signpost to agencies and services who can offer additional help and guidance (where appropriate) and support children in school. Should you have a personal concern or school related issue, then I will always be here as a listening ear.

I am our Assistant FLO here at Willesborough with particularly good knowledge of the role of School Health, who can help with a wide range of health and emotional wellbeing issues. I work hand in hand with Anna and am always here for a chat if you need it!

My role is to work with children who may need a little extra care! I work with children across the infants and juniors, in small groups or one to one, who might be struggling with worries, friendship issues or resilience, to give a few examples. I also work closely with Anna and Kelly to help our families with any other support they might need.

Anna, our school FLO works every day during the school week from 8.00am until 4.00pm and is always available to offer you help, advice and support.  She is supported by Kelly, who works 8.30 until 12.30 everyday. We also have Sarah, who is our school Welfare Practitioner. Sarah works directly with children in school and links up with their parents. This may be related to school or other aspects of family life.  They have lots of contacts in the Ashford area and is happy to help you access provision, if it is appropriate.

The FLOs work across the Willesborough Schools.  Their main office is in the junior school but they can meet you on either site.  They can be found most mornings between 8.45am and 9:00am around the infant and junior school playgrounds. 

Throughout the year there are many opportunities for parents to come in and get more involved in our school with the introduction of coffee mornings and afternoon tea.
