PASTORAL COFFEE MORNING A SUCCESS!
Last week The Safeguarding and Pastoral Team held their first parent/carer communication coffee morning.
This was a great informal opportunity for parents and carers to develop and share their communication techniques and good practice in order to enhance their children's interactions.
Amongst the tea and biscuits the team shared the ‘signs’ of the week from the GANF website and taught the group how to sign the song, ‘I can sing a rainbow’, a particular favourite of Mrs Hodder!
One carer who was present at the session said, “'I have attended the session today and without doubt this has been the best session I have ever been too. There were opportunities to both learn, practice and ask questions in an informal way. I recommend the sessions and do hope they continue, practice makes perfect”.
The Safeguarding and Pastoral Team are very pleased with the turnout and feedback from this event and have already booked more dates.
Parent/Carer Communication Coffee Mornings are due to happen on the following dates throughout the next academic year. Parents and Carers will be reminded of the dates again nearer the time.
