TS5C is delighted to announce that it is supporting the work of Andy Leafe, the As for Elmhurst Junior School, Hindhayes Infants School, (the feeder School for Elmhurst) and Brookside School in Street Somerset, in providing holiday time day trips to disadvantaged families.
As the Parent Family Support Advisor (PFSA), one of the main ways that Andy has developed of addressing life style changes is to organise day trips, utilising the school minibus during half term holidays and school holidays. He provides free day trips and outings, predominately for the vulnerable families he is assisting. A high proportion of the families he works with are single parents with low income, therefore they tend not to have a car. In a rural community this can be very restrictive to a family’s movements and to a certain degree add to a feeling of isolation.
