Parent Support Advisor

Hi, my name is Jo Stapleton and I am your Parent Support at Manadon Vale Primary School. My role within the school is to offer support and confidential, impartial advice to you on any concerns or queries you may have about your child's education or well-being. I may not have the answers, but I will do my best to support you and if necessary direct you to the right person or agency to help you.


I am able to offer support in the following area:

  • Provide information about services and sources of help
  • Attend meetings with you, for moral support, to ask questions or to take notes
  • Help complete forms/paperwork
  • Help you understand and manage referrals
  • An unbiased ear 


There are many more ways in which I may be able to assist, please feel free to contact me. No matter how small your concern, if something is worrying you then talk about it, hopefully, we can resolve it.


I work full time in school so please give me a call on 01752 705345 or you can email me at or just pop in.

I am also available on my school mobile 07591 896472 between 8.00am & 4.00pm Monday to Friday, term time only.


I look forward to meeting you.
