Pastoral Care

Our children need to make the most of their time at Risdene Academy. In order to do this we make every effort to make sure your child is as settled and happy as possible and that they attend school every day. We know that during their primary school years every day counts.

At Risdene Academy we are lucky to have a Parent Support Advsior: Lynn Butler. Lynn Butler works with teachers and parents to make sure your child is in school and learning as well as possible by identifying any issues or areas of concern.

Lynn's role brings families, outside agencies and the school together. The agencies she works with include:

Lynn is easily accessible in school and is here to help you with any issues which may be affecting your child's education. If you need any help or advice please contact:

Lynn Butler (Parent Support Advisor) on 01933 353761 or

She will make an appointment to see you in school, arrange to make a home visit or advise you when you may be able to see her.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's attendance please either contact Lynn or see our Absence Policy.
