Parent Workshops

As part of our drive to keep parents as informed as possible about their child's education, we will be running a series of workshops through the next three terms. Please attend our workshops if you are able to as we have had very positive feedback about the ones we have run so far.  The resources for each workshop will be published on this page for you to view and use at home.

Footsteps Workshop
June 2016: A pedestrian safety workshop, for parents and their children, took place out and about on the streets around the school. Aimed at helping children to learn to think for themselves and gradually get better at dealing with roads and traffic, the course taught them how to decide what they have to do to keep safe in various traffic situations. As one of the most important things a child needs to learn, an awareness of pedestrian safety could one day save their life.
