Every first Wednesday of the month 10am to 12pm the Cafe will be run by the 6th Form students hosting a parent/carer coffee morning. This gives parents and carers the opportunity to informally to share experiences, issues, or worries with others as parent networking can be a powerful support system. There is a different focus for these drop-ins each month.
Let either Laura firstname.lastname@example.org or Carol email@example.com know if you have any ideas of themes you would like us to arrange. In the past we have had hosts from Parent carer forum, Speech and Language therapists, social workers, as well as staff from the school.
