Home School Liaison Workers
Hello from Cheryl Andreozzi-Picton and Nicola Webster. We are the Home School Liaison Workers at Walton Leigh.
At Walton Leigh we are keen to support the whole family, and in our roles as Home School Liaison Workers, we are here to assist your child in their continued development and well-being in any way required; we are happy to support you at all meetings and to present the school’s knowledge and perspective of your child.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any problem or concern, no matter how insignificant it may seem; if it is affecting your child and family we would like to help you resolve the issue.
As your child gets older we can offer support and advice regarding the next steps and what is available post 19.
Our working hours are as follows - Cheryl: Monday to Thursday, 8:30am - 3pm. Nicola: Thursday and Friday 8:30am - 2:30pm. We can be contacted by email or phone:
01932 223243 (main school number)
If we are not available, we will call you back as soon as possible, and we're happy to pass on any information to the class teacher if required.
During the school holidays we check emails regularly, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries.
We look forward to meeting you
Cheryl and Nicola
