Home School Community Liaison Coordinator 

Hi, my name is Rebecca Lomax and I am delighted to be the Home School Community Liaison (HSCL) Coordinator in The Monastery Primary School. I also work in St Joseph’s Primary School.


The HSCL programme is in place across the country because we recognise that parents and guardians are the most important people in their children’s lives. It is the job of the HSCL to support relationships between the school, the home and the community, to help assist you in the process of your child’s education. 


Part of my job includes: 


Meeting with parents/ guardians to offer advice and support in relation  to their child’s education. Maybe your child is not attending as often as they should, are having problems with friendship groups or find it difficult getting organised for school. I am here to offer a friendly ear and support if it’s needed. 

Organising  courses  throughout the year for you the parents/guardians, maybe to learn a new skill or for enjoyment. Courses may include, cooking, crafts and additional English classes. 

Sharing information between the school and home which may be helpful for you. 

Supporting the positive relationships between The Monastery Primary School and the families of our students. 


I look forward to working with you  to help your children reach their full potential here in The Monastery .

I am in The Monastery all day on Monday and Tuesday and on Wednesday until 12.30pm.

I am at the school gates on those mornings also. 


You can contact me on: 083 086 6795 (Whatsapp is also available) or through the school.
