Learning Mentor


We are very lucky at Broad Oak to have Kelly Dytham as our full time family support worker and learning mentor. More details about the work Kelly and her team do, can be found in the attached leaflet.


Click on the attached leaflet to see how we can help ensure that your child recieves the help they need to make the best of their time at Broad Oak.




Kelly is supported in her role by Mrs Alex Sutton, our Special Educational Needs  and Disability Co-Ordinator (SENDO), Mrs Jane Petersons, our Learing Mentor and ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) and Mrs Jane Taylor our Nurture and Life Skills assistant.



We work with Operation Encompass in conjunction with Lancashire Police to ensure the safeguarding of all the children in the school. This alerts us to any incident where a child may have been exposed to domestic violence which required police intervention.


Our school policies on working with children and safeguarding issues can be found in our policies page.

The school nursing team will continue to operate throughout the covid-19 pandemic.

Should you or your child need to access the school health team then please telephone 0300 247 0040

or email


This service is available Monday to Friday 9-5
