Our Family Support Worker, Julie Roberts, holds monthly informal Coffee Mornings on the first Thursday of each month where parents/carers/families are welcome to call in for a chat, support and to share information/ideas with other families.  Occasionally, there will be a specific focus to these Coffee Mornings and other agencies will also be on hand to offer information and support.

The next meeting will be held on : Date to be confirmed

As always everyone is welcome; we always look forward to seeing as many parents and carers as are able to attend.

If you are unable to attend any of these meetings, Julie is available to meet with parents and carers either in school or at home at a mutually convenient time.



There are regular after school clubs which take place, and if you are interested in your child attending these, please contact Julie who will be able to give you more information.  The clubs usually last for 4 or 5 weeks and the theme varies.  The clubs are popular and spaces can fill up quickly.  Parents/carers are required to make their own arrangements to collect students from school at 4.30pm.
