Family Liaison Officers

Family Liaison Team

Hello, our names are Louise Abernethy and Natalie Miller and we are the Family Liaison Officers (FLOs) at St Mungo’s Academy.

Our role is to provide a link between the school and your family, and to support your young people to overcome any barriers to learning and opportunities. We are here to provide support to parents and carers, and to help with any issues that you may have in relation to supporting your children, both at home and in school. We are working to increase parental involvement within school and to encourage families to learn and work together. We are able to provide qualifications, new skills and to signpost to agencies that will be able to provide you with the support you and your family needs. If you have a personal concern or school related issue, then we are here as to listen to you. Any query, large or small, that you may require assistance with, we are here to help.
