About Our Family and Community Work
Parent engagement has been a key focus since the relief of lockdown.
Our Family and Community Lead has offered half termly drop-in coffee mornings. The focus of these sessions has been about building positive communications, establishing respectful working relationships and opening lines of communication with our families to see where and how we can support them in the future. These in turn have fed into informing us about gaps in knowledge and areas of need which direct the topic for a 'workshop/ focus session' later in the same half term.
Subject areas of the focus groups have been Emotion Regulation; living with ASD/ ADHD; upskilling adults for work placements; depression and anxiety. The uptake of all these sessions is good. Parents have requested these on a 1-2-1 base and these have been very successful.
Feedback from those who have attended, report them to be incredibly useful and refreshing. They have broken down any barriers between home and school and parents leave with a positive views of their child's education. Parents are more supportive of us and our ethos and the consistency in which behaviors' are managed (at home and school) has improved.

Coffee Mornings and Session Dates

Wednesday 6th July  9:30 - 11:00

Please come along to say "hi" 😊 or "bye"😕 at the last coffee 🍮morning for this academic year.
Some of you may be new parents joining us, some are more familiar and may be moving onto new settings, so we would like to say our 'good byes'.   All welcome, including small siblings.
As always there will be tea, coffee and cake🍩🍰.  It's very relaxed and informal, just a chance for you to chat and an opportunity for us to plan any topic-specific talks that you would like next year.  If you have any worries about the next step, or tips on things to do over the summer - we are here to help.
We look forward to seeing many faces and getting to know our new families
