Family Liaison Officer
Hello, I am Carol Naunton – your Family Liaison Officer
At Broke Hall Primary School we understand that there are sometimes situations where a listening ear or additional support is needed.
There are many ways I can help, offering both practical and emotional support to you and your family in relation to parenting strategies, financial concerns, sleep, anxiety. I don’t have all the answers but I can signpost you to additional services who may be able to support you and your family.
Please do not hesitate to contact me via email email@example.com or, the school office 01473 729544 or on my mobile 07599 970273.
Some current information of events or groups running will be sent out via parentmail, please look out for these and again if you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact me.
