Parent Support Advisor

Hello Pennycross Parents!



My name is Lynn Pashby and I am the Parent Support Advisor here at Pennycross Primary School.

I am trained in Parent Support work, community mental health, and autism awareness and counselling.

My work days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 8.30 am and 4.30 pm and I can help with referrals to outside agencies (such as school nurse), accompanying to meetings, completing forms or come in for a cuppa and a chat! No problem is too big or too small.

I am happy to meet with you at school or elsewhere if preferred

I can also be contacted on the school landline 01752 705137 or by email on

My door is always open!  

I look forward to meeting you very soon.



As your Parent Support Advisor, I thought I would give you some guidance as to how I can support you going forward.

 My hours will be 8.30 am – 4.30 pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each week where I will be on the school premises.

I can be contacted on the school phone which is 01752 705137 and by email on   I can also communicate via Zoom or Microsoft Teams if preferred.

If conversations are difficult through the other means of communication, I am able to offer face to face meetings in my office during my normal working hours to no more than two people at the same time from the same family ‘bubble’,  however these are by appointment only and social distancing will be in operation.   I am not able to offer hot or cold drinks and the use of the toilet in school is discouraged to avoid cross contamination.

Look forward to meeting you soon!
