Hello, we are your Family Liaison Officers (FLO’s) or affectionately known as the FAB 4.

We are here to support all families starting from the very first day until they move on to pastures new.  At some point, we all need a bit of support. This can take many forms from the need for a friendly chat, the chance to offload the stresses of the day to advice on finance, behaviour and other sensitive matters.  So please come and find one of us. One of us is always on a gate in the morning and we can pass messages on for you or feel free to email us using the contact details above.

Please look out for our termly newsletter which has lots of hints and tips and useful contact information, along with information on parent courses and coffee mornings (virtual at the moment).
