Family Liaison Officers

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.

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 Nikki, who works Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8.00am until 4.00pm 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. 

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 Nikki to help our families with any other support they might need.

Willesborough Infant School works with children and their families to:

  • Recognise the uniqueness of the individual child and family
  • Nurture the wellbeing of children and their families, promoting independence and individuality
  • Raise the self-esteem of children and families so that they can develop positive attitudes, a strong self-image, value for others and uphold strong moral values.

The wellbeing and inclusion team is committed to the common good of the child/family and community to respect and recognise the individual need and respond appropriately
