Family Support Advisor

Janette Wells is the Family Support Advisor (FSA) at Scargill Junior School.  As a school, we are committed to continually support our parents/carers and children in order for them to gain their best outcomes during their time at Scargill.  The role of the FSA is to develop positive home/school relationships working closely with families, children and school to help ensure that each child is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.   The FSA can offer support and advice if we or you, feel that you or your child should need it.  Her work may involve 1-1 with your child, group work or, supporting you as parents.  This can include working with children and families around bereavement, friendships, low self-esteem, family breakups, safeguarding issues, debt management and other issues that may occur.  If you feel the FSA can be of assistance to you or your child, please contact the school office.  Please see below link for details of Parent Surgery:
