NCPS Flo Profile
Hello my name is Julie Marks, I am a Family Liaison Officer at our fabulous school, I have been doing the job for 12 years now and have acquired a great deal of experience working with families.
There are no rule books when bringing up children and life throws us some challenging stuff which can be difficult to deal with. Please never feel you are alone, I have an open door policy and am here to help you, not judge you. I work directly with families and can provide a friendly listening ear and a cuppa, sometimes knowing you are not alone and talking things through is enough.
I support at meetings, signpost to other organisation and refer to other agencies should it be required.
These are just a few things I support with:-
- Parenting advice
- Family relationships
- Challenging behaviour
- Self-esteem issues
- Domestic Violence
- Healthy eating
- Health issues
- Well-being groups for children
- Courses for parents
I have two grown up boys and they have given me some challenges in the past. Both have grown into amazing young men, I have two Grandsons which I love and adore.
I am on the playground nearly every morning and at the main entrance at the end of the day, you can email or phone me, I am always available.
My name is Alison Stevens and I am a Family Liaison Officer here at Newington Community Primary School. I have worked within this role since 2013 and I am also a parent of the school. I have a son of 15 and a daughter of 7 so I understand the challenges involved in bringing up children.
My role is to liaise between families and school to help support you and to ensure that your children are happy at school, ready to learn and fulfilling their potential. I work closely with families to help overcome any barriers to children's learning by providing advice and support in those difficult times when it can be hard to know where to turn.
If I can't directly help I will find someone who can.
I run a weekly Toddler Group here at the school which runs every Wednesday morning from 9-10.30am for babies and toddlers.
My other responsibilities include running wellbeing groups within school, pets as therapy sessions, and lunchtime/break time support for children, parent coffee morning, and swap shop, parent courses, primary/secondary school admission support as well as arranging events in school for families.
Please feel free to pop in for a chat, call, email or find me on the playground at the beginning and end of every day.
