Family Link & Pastoral Support Worker

Mrs Sheldon

My name is Lianne Sheldon and I am the family support link and pastoral care worker for your school. I have worked in early education since 2002 and moved into family support in 2008.
I understand that many children and families experience difficult times and I am here to work with and support families in many ways:
• I will listen to parents/carers concerns and offer suggestions and advice for individuals and families on behaviour management, boundaries, routines, school attendance and healthy eating to name a few. I can also refer and signpost to other services available within Bristol.
• I will work with and support families during key school transition, including newcomers.
• I will work with families who are going through difficult times including relationship breakdown, bereavement, mental well-being and financial hardship.
I am passionate about working with the family to help with challenges in a positive way so children can achieve the best outcomes.
Outside of Woodlands I am a mother to 2 children and enjoy making memories with them and my husband. I love animals and we have a busy household with 4 pets to care for.
