My name is Liz Kirby and I am the Family Support Partner here at The Ridge.
Some of you may already know me, as I have worked in school as a teaching assistant for the past nine years. However, I have been part of the school community for the past eighteen years as my own children attended The Ridge.
My role involves providing support to parents on a wide range of issues. I can help you with both school based and personal matters. These may include: homework, attendance, behaviour, special needs, changes in family circumstances, adult education and general advice.
I am available each morning either on the playground or in school from 8:45-9:00am. However, you are always welcome to phone the school or pop in to arrange to see me at a suitable time later in the day.
The whole school community is important to us here at The Ridge and we are committed to doing all we can to nurture and support our school and the wider community.
Being a parent is the hardest job in the world, and at times we all need to talk in confidence to someone who is non-judgemental. No problem is too big or small to talk about!
