Wellbeing and family Support

My name is Mr Thompson and I am the school well being lead and Family Liaison Officer (FLO).

My role is to support you and your children, offering pastoral care and enhancing the wellbeing of your whole family.

I am part of the Academy Wellbeing Team and liaise closely with all the FLOs across the other schools and Mrs Crunden (Senco), combining our expertise and resources to enable the children’s wellbeing, happiness and progress.

Within school, I work closely with Mrs Hurst, Mrs Hadfield and all the school staff. I work impartially and confidentially to provide a link between you and the school, always in the best interests of you and your family.

So what can I help you with? School issue or personal concern, big or small, I’m here to help. I can offer practical help or advice, signpost to external agencies if appropriate, or just be here to listen if you want someone to talk to. 

I also support your children during the school day, to ensure that they are happy and feel safe and secure in school. For those who need a bit of extra help, I run individual or group sessions to enable them find solutions to any problems. This may be self-esteem, behaviour, friendships, playground worries, anything that might be affecting how they feel about their day.

I am trained in Counselling Skills for Children, Emotional Regulation, Friendship Skills, all interventions that can help your child work through whatever they are feeling and find some solutions.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you feel that I can help with. I am in school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please contact me on 07762 118527 or flo@milstead.kent.sch.uk.

 Best wishes

Mr Thompson, Family Liaison Officer
