As a center we have found that parental support and engagement creates a more positive experience for our students and has been vital in their childs’ success in school; it improves performance; increases confidence, skills, behaviour, attendance and motivation, both within and outside the school setting.
We like to work with our families for the sole purpose of enriching the lives of our students and those within their family. One way of gaining parental support is through drop in coffee mornings and workshops.
This year so far we have been lucky enough to work with ADD-vance, who have shared their knowledge on ASD/ ADHD. Later this term parents have the opportunity to learn about what is happening in the community around gangs and county lines. Dates that will be of interest are:
Wednesday 18th January – Butterfly Room are talking about anxiety
Wednesday 1st February – a workshop for KS3 parents
Additional to running group sessions, our Family Worker offers 1-2-1 support for families.
