Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Kelly Powell; I am the Family Support Advisor for Ernesettle Community School.

The Family Support Advisor position has been developed to inform and support Parents/Carers, helping them engage with their children’s learning and general wellbeing at your request.  I will provide impartial information to Parents/Carers about their children’s school and the full range of services available to them.

I feel that the partnership between our school and parents is extremely important and I will make it my priority to see that everyone in the parenting role has the opportunity to access support through the many challenges of raising a family.


I aim to work in partnership with Parents/Carers to identify the need for support groups or parenting classes for those wishing to enhance their relationship with their children. To help support a range of difficulties that you may experience with your child, such as behaviour, attitude, attendance and the wellbeing/emotional health of a child.

As the Family Support Advisor I will be available every day during term time.  To contact me you can:

  • collect a contact form from reception, fill it in and I will call you back
  • pop in and I will arrange a time to see you
  • email me on fsadvisor@ecs.plymouth.sch.uk
  • use the 'Contact Us' form on the school's website

If you would like to call me, please ring the school number on (01752) 201177 and choose option 2, if I am not available, or it is out of hours please leave a message, I will return your call as soon as possible

I look forward to meeting you and working together to ensure the best for your family.

Best wishes,

Kelly Powell

Family Support Advisor
