Out of School Liaison Officer (OSLO)
My name is Clair Taylor and I am the Out of School Liaison Officer (OSLO) for Fitzwaryn School. I have various parts to my job role including; the running of Fitz Kids Holiday Club, arranging after school clubs at Fitzwaryn, supporting older students at FAAAZE and Beatbox youth groups and also helping the children/young people and their families to access other extra-curricular activities within their locality or for additional support.
I can work with families by recommending and researching activities for your child and to liaise with the people running the activity to ensure it will meet the needs of your child; this can include specific medical training and enabler support.
I will keep you informed of inclusive activities going on in your area, and can also submit funding applications or transport requests on your behalf.
Information is shared in a number of ways:
- OSLO newsletters
- School noticeboard
- Sending out the Short Breaks Newsletter
- Attendance at parent’s evenings and information fairs
You can contact me for support via the school office 01235 764504 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also available at the majority of the parent coffee mornings for a more informal chat or request for support. These take place on the first Friday of each month from 10-11am in the Student Centre.
