Parent Support Worker

Hi, my name is Barbara Emami and I am the Parent Support Worker at Deansbrook Junior School.

My job is to provide a range of support to parents, families and careers of our pupils so they can support them with their learning at home.

One of the ways I do this is to run the weekly English Conversation Group on Tuesday mornings at 9am. This is a chance to practice speaking English in a relaxed atmosphere. Coffee Mornings are held every Wednesday morning at 9am and each week we have a different topic. This is a chance to meet other parents and staff from the School and to find out more about learning at Deansbrook.  Minutes of the meetings are available to any parent from reception.

In November 2014 the School was successful in achieving the nationally recognised Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA).

I am also able to offer individual appointments should they be needed and I can link parents up with other agencies should more specialist help be required. Some of these agencies are listed below; click to download information leaflets for parents.
