AUTUMN TERM... We will be running parent drop-in coffee mornings in conjunction with MTEP. Please see details below or on the Newsletter for upcoming events and topics. 

Parent Coffee Mornings:  

We are really lucky to have the expertise of two Family Support Workers from MTEP coming into school to run coffee mornings and drop-ins alongside Miss Panting (SENCO). We are going to start with monthly meetings and gauge popularity from there. Each coffee morning will have a focus but also have time to chat, meet other parents and ask any questions or request guidance. The dates are as follows:  

  • Friday, October 21st at 9:30am – Supporting learning at hom
  • Friday, November 18th at 9:30am - Routines & Boundaries (to include bedtime and toilet routines). 
  • Friday, December 9th at 9:30am - Neurodiversity topics Autism, ADHD, PDA & other support & 12 tips for Christmas & survival guide. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
