Family Support Advisor

Mrs Emma Thomas

Family Support Advisor

Welcome to Bude Primary Academy! My name is Emma Thomas and I am the academy's full time Family Support Advisor. My role is to offer support to parents of our pupils who may have a range of concerns from financial to SEND. 
I host a weekly 'Parent Drop In' on a Friday morning to which all parents are warmly welcome. During these sessions we discuss a range of topics, meet member's of staff and work with significant members of our community such as the local police, housing officers and more. We recognise that often, parents' needs are overlooked and so there is a strong influence of caring for our parent's emotional health needs within the group. These sessions are designed to allow parents to seek advice and gain understanding in a very informal manner whilst enjoying a cuppa and a slice of cake!
I operate an open door policy however if I am not in school when you enquire please leave a message with the school office and will get back to you or call/text me on 07772296182
Below are a range of useful links and parent courses coming up:
The summer holiday ideas booklet was created during the Drop In by parents as a useful resource for the summer holidays - please feel free to print off a copy!
