Family Support Co-Ordinator

Hello! My name is Mrs. Fullwood and I am the Family Support Co-ordinator at Glebe Academy.


My role in school is to provide support, advice and information. I can help with any worries that you
may have in relation to your child’s education, behaviour or well-being.

I can help with signposting to agencies for advice and for help with household worries that you may have.

I may not have all of the answers, but hopefully I can help you to work out how to find them. How I can help or support you and your children:

  • Promoting family routines, self-esteem
    and confidence for you as parents
  • Promoting good behaviour at home and
    positive attitudes for learning
  • Providing targeted support with your
    finances, mental health or daily life as a
  • Signposting and liaising with external
    agencies e.g. domestic violence support,
    support with alcohol and drug misuse
  • Assistance with benefit advice
  • Promoting good attendance and punctuality

Behaviour Tips

Beat the Buzzer

Morning routines can be difficult. Using the alarm on your phone or computer. Agree a time limit with your child before you start the timer and be fair. For example, getting up in the morning, washing and dressing before starting learning. Remember to praise and remind them along the way for the positive outcomes you want and give a reward if they achieve it at the end.

Praise and Reward

Praise all successes however small.

“I like the way you did….. Well done!”

Praise for effort:

“You worked hard on your learning today”

Again, always agree a reward with your child so they know what’s in it for them at the end.

Good Choices

Giving choices can help your child to be in control of what they do and can reduce resistance from them. For example;
‘Would you enjoy learning Maths or English first?”

‘Would you like to use pencils or felt tips.’

Good Luck!
