Family Support and Parent Links


My name is Lynne Colbeck and I am the Family Support Worker at Fieldhead Primary Academy.

My role is to support parents, carers and families both in school and the community.

My aim is to get the best possible outcome for your family by helping families engage with all aspects of school life. By working together we can increase your child’s confidence as they start their learning journey.


How can I support you:

  • Home visits prior to your child starting nursery
  • Supporting parents of children with additional needs
  • Helping you manage your child’s behaviour
  • Accompanying parents to appointments eg medical
  • Helping accessing appropriate support services
  • Toilet training
  • Healthy eating
  • Sleeping/bedtime routines
  • Homework

As well as offering individual support for families, I can help you with access courses in a variety of subjects within the local community. I have contacts with many support organisations and outside agencies, if I do not know the answer, I can usually find someone who can!


If you would like to meet with me I hold a drop in session every Friday from 9am until 11am.

Alternatively, you can call into the school office and leave a message and your phone number or you can contact me on 07928296973.
