Family Liaison Representative

Rachel Ferguson is the Family Liaison Worker for the school. As most of our pupils come into school by bus, we appreciate that parents don’t have the same opportunities to share information or obtain advice. The aim of her role is to bridge the gap between home and school.


The role is constantly evolving, some of the key roles are providing support and information to parents and carers, as well as signposting to other agencies and professionals and liaising with a variety and range of organisations and professionals to best support families.


Rachel is able to support with completing DLA forms, Family Fund Applications etc.


The role also includes supporting at TAC meetings, acting as Lead Professional if requested, organising parent coffee events and workshops to support parents in supporting their children. Rachel also produces a fortnightly newsletter which contains important school diary dates, information on local support groups and articles on class trips and activities.

Rachel is now coordinating virtual coffee mornings for parents. Do contact Rachel if you would like to join in.
