Family Learning and Workshops


 "Thank you to you all for the time you take in forming and helping parents tackle issues, so helpful and so appreciated"  Parent May 2023


We believe parents and carers play a vital role in their children’s education and the wider aspects of school life.

We welcome parents/carers who wish to get involved in life at our school, in any capacity. Volunteers work in our school in a number of ways including: administration, events, reading schemes and classroom assistants. If you would like to volunteer, we have a number of ideas:

  • You could come into school and support children with their learning;
  • Volunteer to help out on school trips;
  • Help with community events (such as our coffee/tea mornings);
  • Support the school with your skillset.

If you want further information, then please contact the helpful people at our school office, and they will ask you to fill in a form and direct you to the appropriate person.


We regularly offer training workshops throughout the year on topics such as:

  • Easy English
  • Mental Maths
  • Interesting ICT

Other workshops may include PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education), Phonics, Online E-Safety and Secondary Transfers. Our reception families will also be offered phonics and parenting workshops.
