Hello! My name is Lynda Hannaford and I am the Parent Support Adviser at Carterhatch Junior School. I have worked at the school since January 2002, initially as a Teaching Assistant, and was appointed Parent Support Adviser in 2006.
In my role, I work closely with parents/carers to help breakdown barriers which may affect their children’s achievement at school. These include attendance, punctuality, healthy eating, behaviour, learning, homelife issues etc. I run or arrange programmes, workshops and coffee mornings to help parents interact with their children and socialise with other parents. I also work closely with Mrs. Elena, our Learning Mentor, and the school’s Educational Welfare Officer, Mrs. Egan.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns either about your child, yourself or your family, or if you would just like some advice. If you wish to contact me, I can be found in the playground every morning just before the start of school. You may also ask for me at the school office or call me on 020 8804 2101. Alternatively, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
