Parent support advisers (PSAs) work in partnership with families, parents, carers and pupils in a school context.
Parent support advisers work with parents and children to:
help improve behaviour and attendance
overcome barriers to learning to help parents support their children’s learning
work with parents to increase their involvement in their child’s education, both at school and at home.
Parent support advisers work in a number of different settings - either across clusters of schools or in a single school. They come from a wide range of backgrounds including education, health services, social care, as well as actual parents. Typically PSAs work with a range of staff within school. Outside school they may work with other agencies that support parents and children.
If you feel that you would benefit from this type of support, or would like to know more, then please call into school and speak to Miss Beck.
