What is a Learning Support Manager?


A Learning Support Manager's main aim is to turn sad faces into happy faces. This means working closely with parents / carers, teachers and outside agencies to help and support children, who for various reasons are experiencing difficulties with emotional problems, behaviour, attendance or achievement.


The role includes:


•  Working with individual children and small groups.


•  Working closely with all school staff to ensure that appropriate

   support is in place.


•  Working in partnership with parents / carers, supporting their needs

   and those of their child.


•  Monitoring attendance, supporting children and families when appropriate,

   to help improve attendance and punctuality.


•  Being a point of contact to outside support agencies for parents

   and their child.


•  Liaising with local High schools to help ensure a smooth transition

   for those children about to leave Year 6.


•  Holding regular School Council meetings with representatives

   from each year group.


•  Running Breakfast Club for children from Reception to Year 6

   between 8.00 a.m. to 8.45 a.m. Monday to Friday
