I initially joined St. Augustine’s in 2008 as a volunteer reading buddy, 6 months later I became part of the office team and worked as the School Administrator and Attendance Officer. After 6 years of building positive relationships and connections with our parents and carers, I wanted to develop in this area and focus more of my time on supporting our families and young children. I took on the role of Family Liaison worker and along with this role I trained to be one of the schools Designated Safeguarding/Child Protection Officers. In 2020, I added to my role and now enjoy supporting our SEND children and their families too as Assistant SENDCo. I really appreciate my roles and all the challenges they present; each day I learn something new and every day is different. I am here to support every one of our families where I can, I’m very approachable and always on hand for chat should you need me!
