Parent Support Advisor

Hello my name is Juliann Nisbet, I am the Parent Support Advisor at Reddal Hill Primary School. My role in school is to help support parents by offering advice and guidance on any issues you may have, such as concerns around behaviour, attendance, finances etc. I can signpost you to any specialist services or agencies you may need to access and provide information about services in the local area. I can support you with any contact you may have with other professionals or agencies. I am aware that the effects of the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have had a huge impact on our community and families, there may be a number of issues our parents need support with or it could just be that you need a listening ear and someone to talk about your worries with.

 

As a mum myself I understand how difficult parenting can sometimes be and how at times we need that little bit of extra support so please do come and speak to me if you need any advice or support. I am in school every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. You will find me either on the gate or on the playground each day before and after school. You can also contact me through the school office or by phone on 01384 569 053.

I hold a small amount of used uniform in school. If anybody is in need of any uniform please see me and I will do my best to help. If anybody has any outgrown uniform that they no longer need please feel free to bring it into school for us to use.

Safer Sleep

The following guidance has been shared with us by Sandwell Council. Recognising that the colder months might be difficult for families, The Lullaby Trust has put together a leaflet for parents and carers to consider when placing their baby to sleep during the winter months. In addition, there is a separate leaflet containing advice for when babies are away from home or in emergency situations.
