Hello! My name is Danielle Brignall and I am the new Parent Support Adviser (PSA) for Winterslow Primary School. I am really looking forward to getting to know you all and supporting you and your child/children through their schooling journeys. My background before becoming a PSA is predominately in health and fitness. In my last role I worked for Public Health England, specialising in behaviour change. I am also a mummy to Wlliam, aged 6.
What can I offer?
I can offer help and support to parents about any worries that may be causing concern for you or your child during their time at school. PSA's work in partnership with parents and the schools their children attend. I will be working closely with your child's school, but as a PSA I am not a member of the teaching staff. I can provide confidential support, guidance and information about services in the local area.
I don't claim to have all the answers but I might be able to help you find the right advice, support or help.
