Family Outreach recognise that many of our families can feel isolated due to their child being transported to school by taxi. This means that parent/carers are unable to have daily face 2 face contact with school or other parent/carers. The missed “On the gate” discussions many mainstream parent/carers have can provide a great source of information for families.
In light of this Family Outreach aim to provide regular opportunities for our families to come together, share information, learn new skills and support each other.
There are a variety of activities for our families to take part in in school. This includes Adult Learning Sessions, Family Learning activities with your child and School led workshops on how to support your child’s learning at home. Please look at the calendar section of the website for further information.
We also promote any other local community events that families may want to access. Please see Calendar for up and coming events.
Family Outreach publish a termly newsletter which includes key information that families may find useful regarding school and other services/support available. These are sent home with Children each month and can also be accessed on the Get Involved section of the website.
School is keen to involve parent/carers in school life and provide a variety of opportunities for parent/carers to share ideas and opinions. Please see the Parent-Carer Groups and Events icon within Get Involved.
