What is a family partnership officer?

A family partnership officer is a person or sometimes a team for the larger schools, which support communications in-between families and schools. They would be the families information centre for everything they would need to know about the school.

Family partnerships officers can support families in some ways from home issues that could affect the student’s education.  They would take time to talk to families about these problems and provide help and support when needed.  Such as funding, plan meetings, address issues with school matters and put in place relevant interventions.

Family partnership officers also play a significant role in students transitions, supporting families and students when moving on from the school to a new place of work, study or other forms of training. E.g. apprenticeships or internships.
