Parent Support Advisor

Parent Support Advisor (PSA)

My name is Emma Bains and I am the Parent Support Advisor (PSA) at Willesborough Infant School.

I work every day during the school week (Monday-Friday) from 8:30am until 12:30pm and am always available to offer you help, advice and support. This may be related to school or other aspects of family life. I have lots of contacts in the Ashford area and I am here to help you access that provision if it is appropriate.

You will find me on the playground every morning at 8:45am if you would like to catch me for a quick chat or arrange an appointment for later on in the week. Sometimes a listening ear is all that is needed and I am here if you would like to have a chat.

Every Monday I lead a ‘Helping Hands’ session in Acorns from 9:00am-10:00am. This is an opportunity for parents and carers to gather together and enjoy cake, coffee and a chat whilst making resources for teachers to use with the children. Please let me know if you are interested in joining my Helping Hands group.

Throughout the year I create many opportunities for parents to come in and get more involved in our school with the introduction of coffee mornings and afternoon tea. I always enjoy being a part of ‘Big Breakfast’ which takes place on the first Thursday of every time. This is an opportunity for parents to come in to school with their child at 8:20am and enjoy eating breakfast together in the school hall. After they have eaten their breakfast there is a chance for you and your child to go in to your child’s class and share a short learning experience with them.

If you want to contact me you can always leave a message at the main office. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
