Family & Community Page

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.
