The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Family Support

My name is Mrs Deeson and I am your Family Liaison Officer (FLO).

I am part of the Academy Wellbeing Team and liaise closely with all the FLOs across the other schools and Mrs Wickham (Senco), combining our expertise and resources to enable the children’s’ wellbeing, happiness and progress.

Within school, I work closely with Mrs Baker and all the school staff. I work impartially and confidentially to provide a link between you and the school, always in the best interests of you and your family. So what can I help you with? School issue or personal concern, big or small, I’m here to help. I can offer practical help or advice, signpost to external agencies if appropriate, or just be here to listen if you want someone to talk to. I also run regular coffee mornings and informal get-togethers so you can meet other parents/carers, and run parent workshops on all manner of subjects.

 I also support your children during the school day, to ensure that they are happy and feel safe and secure in school. For those who need a bit of extra help, I run individual or group sessions to enable them find solutions to any problems. This may include self-esteem, behaviour, friendships, playground worries, anger management, and any number of other issues.

 I also run a lunchtime club for any child who needs to take timeout from the school day and come and play or draw, or just have a chat. All of this promotes a sense of positive wellbeing and will hopefully enable them to settle in the classroom and learn effectively.

 I am in school on Mondays and Tuesdays and am available on the playground first thing Monday morning and at the end of the school day on Tuesday afternoons, so please feel free to come and talk to me then. Outside those times, or if you would like to make an appointment to see me, please call the school office on 01795 830241, or contact me by email: R.Deeson@villageacademy.co.uk.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you feel that I can help with.

Best wishes

Mrs Deeson, Family Liaison
