Family Support Adviser
How can I get support and advice for my family?
At Fynamore School, we are very lucky to have a Family Support Advisor dedicated to the families of our pupils – Mrs. Emma Groom.
Families come in all shapes and sizes. Being a Parent or Carer is one of the most fulfilling things we’ll ever do, yet it is also one of the most demanding and we can all do with a little bit of help now and then.
Our Family Support Advisor, Mrs. Groom, can help you seek information and resources to support you and your family. She is able to do this in an impartial, non-judgemental way, allowing you and your family to be supported as your child makes their journey through our school.
“I am here to help with any concern or questions you may have about your child or family life in general, or if you just need someone to talk to, then please get in touch – I’m here to support
What type of support is on offer?
Here are some examples of the things that our Family Support Advisor can help with:
Offering a listening ear
Adult learning opportunities
