My name is Sharon Bremner and I am the Family Liaison Officer (FLO) at Foreland Fields School. I have worked in both special and mainstream schools for many years in many different roles.
My work at Foreland Fields School is to support pupils, students, parents and families. Sometimes we all need a little help and support, and maybe do not know where to turn. I enjoy working together with parents and carers to address issues and if I can’t help I can find an agency that can. I am more than willing to meet with parents and carers in a comfy meeting room within school or I can visit them at home.
I send out regular newsletters to parents/carers called ‘The Chatter’ and sometimes a ‘Mini Chatter’ to inform what is happening within school.
I organise training, workshops, speakers and fun things too like family trips to the pantomime. I have also organised a very popular Transition Event and Special Education Fayre.
I try to make life a little easier for families of the pupils and students at the school. In response to concerns I have organised a mobile barber to visit the school to get children's hair cut. I am hoping to make this a regular event.
There is so much that I do that I could mention but why not pop in to ‘Cafe Chatter’ on Friday mornings where parents can meet up. I occasionally arrange guest speakers but it is also just a good chance to meet up and, as the name suggests, chatter.
If I can be of any help I can be contacted through the school office.
