Pupil Wellbeing Co-ordinator and Child Protection Deputy Lead
Hi everyone my name is Deborah Wright, I have worked at Avondale School for 14 years and during that time my role has always been involving supporting, enabling children and their families with what whatever is needed. Life events happen to us all and it is important for school to be able to help and support in anyway that we can without any judgement.
Emotional health and well being issues
Signposting and attending meetings with Parents.
Child Protection Issues
Safeguarding in and out of school.
Cheryl and I work very closely together to provide a wrap around support network to enable children to flourish and achieve a healthy approach to learning no matter what else is happening in their lives. We both live in the community which helps us to be aware of relevant issues and local services that are available to our families.
