Parent Support Advisers
Parent Support Advisers, Hazel Large and Hazel Throssell, known locally as the 'Hazels', work for all the schools in Witham, including New Rickstones and Maltings Academy. They are based here at Templars and are line managed by the Headteacher, Kerrie McGrory.
They run a range of support groups for parents including 'Step by Step, 'Strengthening Families' and 'Time Together'. Regular fliers inform parents of the timings of these sessions. These friendly groups offer advice and guidance to parents on behaviour, developing relationships, coping with sibling rivalry etc. Ring Hazel Large or Hazel Throssell on 01376 512310 for details of current programmes.
Parent Support Advisers can also offer one to one work with parents and families. Please see either Miss Verkooijen or Miss McGrory for details.
