Parent Support

Maxine Whiteside and Martine Cassidy are proud to offer family support at St James’ Lanehead C of E Primary School. 

We are here to help with any worries or concerns you have about your child.  This can be at school or at home or anything that impacts on your family life. 


We understand that parenting is a difficult job and that family life doesn’t always run smoothly but we are here to help you with the challenge.


Our main aim is to allow all children in our school to reach their true potential by attending well and being ready to learn. We will support our families to support your child's education. 


We can offer practical advice and emotional support with issues such as:

  • Behaviour
  • Attendance
  • New to school / area
  • School holiday club / ideas 
  • Transition 
  • Housing
  • Benefits
  • assisting with learning and helping you help your child with their school work. 
  • Completing forms
  • Coping with a family illness or medical issue
  • Attending meetings

Or we can just be a listening ear.

If you need us just pop in for a chat or phone the office and we will get back to you.

The kettle is always on!
