Family Support Advisor

My name is Mrs Sophia Ahmed and I am the Family Support Advisor. I offer support to parents and carers to help achieve positive outcomes for all. This might include providing information or advice, organising training, giving practical help or just offering a listening ear.

My role is:

  • To build parents and carers confidence to deal with difficult parenting issues and behaviours
  • To strengthen relationships and communication between home, school and other professionals
  • To encourage involvement in school activities
  • To help parents and carers support their children with their learning
  • To offer one to one and group support to pupils at Uplands Primary School


You may wish to contact me for issues like these:

  • I'm really worried about my child's self esteem
  • I need help with my anger
  •  I just need someone to talk to
  • I've lost all my confidence since I gave up work to have children
  • I'm just not coping since my partner left
  • I have lots of questions about being a parent


As parents and carers there are times when you need a little extra support and guidance, someone to talk to and point you in the right direction. Someone who's non judgemental, someone who will listen and offer practical advice and support.

I will do whatever I can to help you and if I can't then I probably know someone that can.

If you would like advice or support on any issue you can contact me to arrange a meeting or informal chat.

I am at Uplands Primary School mainly on Thursdays 9.00 - 2.00 and Fridays 9.30 -1.30.

You can ring me on my mobile -  or via the school office 01252 873069.
