Meet our Parent Support Advisors




My name is Sheila Bawden and I am a Parent Support Advisor at St Petroc's School. I have been at the School for three years. Prior to this I was at Bodmin College from 1998 to 2014 as a Teaching Assistant supporting students mainly in years 8 and 9. During this time I completed the CACHE Level 3 Award in Childcare and Education. The course covers many aspects of the health and development of children during the Early Years and through to Adolescent. To achieve this I had studied modules including, Child Protection and safeguarding, Behaviour in children from 0-18, Attachment disorders, Adolescence and Mental Health and also how to work effectively with Multi-Agencies. I see my role and responsibility as an advocate for Young People, children and their families. To help and assist them in times of difficulties. I am very dedicated and have always wanted the best outcomes for Families, Young People and children.

My name is Mrs Sheila Jackson; I am a Parent Support Advisor for St Petroc’s C of E Primary School. I have worked in primary schools for over 11 years.  I have a NVQ 3 in Supporting Teaching and Learning in schools and I also have a Diploma in Trauma Informed and Mental Health in Schools (Practitioner Status).


One of the roles of a Parent Support Advisor is to work closely with children and families who may be experiencing difficulties, this could be as simple as a misunderstanding with friends or it could be a more complex issue such as bereavement or a change in family circumstance. It may be that the support is needed for a short while or it could be a longer process.  I believe the emotional welfare of our pupils is of the greatest importance. As a dedicated Parent Support Advisor, I take time and care that's needed to be sensitive and compassionate towards parents and children ensuring the best outcome for families.
