Pupil and Parent Support

My name is Isobel Sheard. I am the Pupil & Parent Support Manager at Hoyle Court Primary School. I am also the school’s Mental Health First Aider, Mental Health Champion and Deputy Safeguarding Lead. I support parents and their children with a wide range of issues, from domestic abuse, bereavement & separation, behaviour, attendance and social and emotional difficulties.

I also work with outside agencies such as Family Action, Dare2, Barnado’s, Education Welfare Officers, Children’s centre’s and the School Nurse Team.

You can contact me through the office or email i.sheard@hoylecourt.bradford.sch.uk

Myself and a team of Pastoral staff mentor children in school, children are encouraged to come and see any of us and talk about their concerns. Some children may require ongoing support such as anger management intervention, bereavement counselling, self-esteem sessions, emotional and behaviour support and making and maintaining friendships.
