Parent Advisor – Lee Franklin
My name is Lee Franklin and I am the Parent Support Advisor based in St George’s School. My main focus is to ensure children are in school regularly and punctually in order for them to thrive and achieve. Sometimes family life can be difficult and I am here to support you to overcome barriers which may be preventing good attendance. Some of these difficulties could include issues around housing/eviction, family break up, domestic violence, financial worries, parenting, employment/ benefits, health and many more. Should you have a personal concern or school related issue I can offer a listening ear and give practical suggestions and advice. Sometimes just speaking to somebody can ease the burden you may be feeling so please do come in and speak to me over a cup of tea or coffee.
I am in school five days per week and you will find me at the main school gate mornings and afternoons. An appointment is not always necessary but I am kept quite busy so ask at the school office if you would like to come in and speak to me. My timetable is flexible therefore if you feel more comfortable speaking to me outside of school I can make home visits. If you would like support to attend meetings or appointments I am able to offer this too. I can signpost you to various charities that provide funding for urgent items such as beds and bedding, cookers and other household goods. I am also a signature holder for Food bank vouchers which I distribute in a very discreet way so please ask for more information if these services can support you in any way.
I am sure you are aware that all the children at St George’s walk the mile a day. To support this you are invited to walk the “parent mile” which takes place every Wednesday morning in Mayow Park. We meet at the main school gate at 9:00am so no matter what your level of fitness is do come along and join in this fun event. It is a great way to stay healthy and a chance to meet other parents too.
I look forward to meeting you and any query large or small, I am here to help.
