Parental and Family Support

We offer support to all our families and have an open door policy. Informally, we are always available for a chat or to answer a question. Some class teachers are in the playground after-school - or you can come to the front office where you will be able to organise a meeting. We have a school ELSA who is available, a Bilingual Assistant, a Parent Partnership Lead and there is always a member of the leadership team available to speak to you.

Any formal appointment can be booked through the front office at reception.


We offer a range of workshops for parents to support their child with learning at home. These are practical sessions where the child and parent workshop together on key tasks and concepts. Packs are then given , which can be used at home to support progress.

Some workshops are open to all parents and some have a targeted audience of children.

We run curriculum workshops carefully linked to feedback from yourselves and workshops to support you pastorally with our children.   

 Introductions- Parent Partnership Lead (School-based)


Hi, my name is Ashleigh Lynch and I am the LSA in Green Turtles class.  This is my twelfth year at Talavera Junior and my favourite thing about the school is your children.  They make the school the happy, successful and vibrant place that it is.  I have four grown-up children, who still keep me very busy!  I enjoy reading and would like all the children at school to enjoy it too.

You can find me in the playground every morning from 8:30am.


If you have any unwanted uniform, please give it to the office.  If you are in need of any items, speak to the office as we usually have a selection of items.
