Hello, I am Sharon Walker and I am the Family Liaison Officer, Mental Health First Aider and Designated Safeguarding Lead at Alfreton Park Special School. My role within school is to work closely with pupils and families providing help and support if required.
I begin my work with families from the point they contact school to arrange a visit with me to look around school. If a place is allocated, I support the family through the transition process into our school and become a link between home and school.
I run regular parent /carer workshops on a variety of topics and also a general chat/ coffee morning!! The social events I organise are very popular from Family discos to shopping trips and summer trips to the seaside!
I am always available to offer help and support and if I am unable to directly help I will contact the relevant agencies who may be able to.
