Parent Support Advisors
Michelle Rankin and Angela Nottingham are the Parent Support Advisors for Abbey Hill Sixth Form
Being a parent, carer or guardian is hard work. Sometimes we all need a bit of advice, someone to answer our queries or even someone to just tell us if we’re on the right track.
Parent Support Advisors (PSAs) are here to do just that. They can advise on a whole range of issues to help you with parenting problems that many of us face. In addition to this, they aim to help you to become more involved in your child’s school and their learning.
PSAs can help with a whole host of problems and concerns such as:
- Behaviour issues
- Housing issues
- Attendance concerns
- Providing access to activities and adult learning
- Linking to other agencies
- Funding and benefits
- Home or school worries
PSAs can arrange an appointment with you at school or visit you in the comfort of your own home. They can also arrange to visit you at your local community centre, library or children’s centre – wherever is easier for you.
