Family Support Advisor

Lorna Taylor
I am the Family Support Advisor here at Devonport High School for Boys.

This role in school has been developed to provide information, advice and support to families.

I am a member of the support staff who is available to listen to any worries or concerns you may have with regards to student’s behaviour, learning or welfare.

I am here to support families and this service is confidential and impartial.

I am also able to offer advice, guidance and information on all aspects of family life not just those restricted to education.

Part of my role will be to gain parents’ views and ensure these are represented, thus further developing the partnership between school and parents so that all parents are confident about the work of the school and understand how their views are taken into account.

If you would like my support please do not hesitate to contact me.
