My name is Cheryl Waumsley and I am the new Parent Support Adviser working alongside Lucie McAvoy at Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School.
The aim of the PSA is to assist parents with all social, emotional and welfare aspects of raising a child which can sometimes be challenging but ultimately rewarding.
The PSA can help with:
There are no rule books when bringing up children and at times life throws us some challenges which we can find difficult to deal with.
Please never feel you are alone, I have an open door policy and am here to help you, the best that I can. I work directly with families and can provide a friendly listening ear .I am available for informal chats about things that concern you as parents, including any of the above.
Sometimes just knowing that you are not alone and having the opportunity to talk things through is enough to put life in prospective.
I work with in partnership with statutory and voluntary agencies for the benefit of our families, and can make referrals as and when needed.
My working hours are Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm, and I am in the playground most days at the beginning and end of school so please come and find me.
If you are unsure of approaching me direct then contact me on the school number and I will be happy to help.
