I have been in my role as Family Support Advisor for over 9 years now, for those who know me as Miss Deb, I take my role very seriously and feel very privileged to be able to meet and support so many amazing families on my journey at Sacred Heart. I work 3 days a week, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.
My motto is….
“Actions Speak Louder Than Words”
My role as Family Support Advisor here at Sacred Heart is to: support families, to work in partnership with parents/carers and their children, always having our children at the heart of everything we do, to develop relationships and trust to overcome any barriers, to care for the wellbeing of all children, parents/carers, building self- compassion and resilience, to be approachable and always be ready to listen and have empathy in a range of circumstances presented.
Also it is my responsibility to have a knowledge on any issues affecting families and their children, to have experience of working with multiple agencies and signposting and supporting the relationship between home and school. So too demonstrating the importance of parental involvement in their children's development.
We are a team at Sacred Heart and I feel working together we can achieve anything with your continued support. Welcoming Parents/Carers and their children at the gate each morning with a smile to listen to any problems or questions, is always a highlight of my day.
If you see me please give me a wave or come over and say hello!
