Hello, my name is Pam Skinner and I am the Family Liaison Officer (FLO) at Hartley Primary Academy.
My job is to help support parents, carers and their children to ensure that the children learn well and flourish.
My aims are to:-
empower parents/carers to take an active role in their child’s social, emotional and educational development.
support parents regarding a range of issues that could impact on their ability to parent effectively.
encourage good relations and effective dialogue between parents and teachers about a child’s progress.
I have a good listening ear and am available for informal chats, either in school or a meeting place within the local community. I am able to help you with most things and if I can’t directly help I will try to find someone who can. To get in touch you may either telephone or e-mail me or pop into school and see me personally.
My role is to provide pastoral support to parents/carers and help with any issues that you may have in relation to supporting your children, both at home and in school. I work to encourage parental involvement within school, signpost to agencies (where appropriate) and support children in school. Should you have a personal concern or school-related issue, then I am here as a listening ear.
I am in school every day as part of my role as Teaching Assistant, Breakfast Club Assistant and Mid-day Supervisor.
