Parent/Carer Courses

Dear Parent/Carer

 

After the success of this year’s programme of training with parents/carers, we are going to continue to offer a number of courses this year. The feedback from the sessions this year were all highly positive. Booking forms will be sent out closer to the time. The list below gives you advance notice in case you want to pop the dates into your diaries. The dates will be fixed as below unless for any reason there is something we cannot control e.g. the trainer being absent etc.

Some of the sessions will be a repeat of the courses we ran last year but feel free to come and revisit them.

Our pupils have a range of needs. Not all of the sessions will match your child’s needs although you can come to the sessions if you are interested. If you are not sure if the session will be something that would support you with your child then please just contact Julie Goddard in school and she will know or will find out.
