SUPPORT FOR OUR FAMILIES
For 2018/19 we will continue our partnerships with families as part of our whole school improvement plan. We will be working with a number of external family support charities on this. We have also set up a Family Facebook Page whereby we share information/events that may be beneficial to our families and information that relates to school life.
Following on from the success of our Parent Coffee Mornings last academic year, Sara and Atakan are continuing with them for 2018/19 at St Luke's Community Centre. These mornings are beneficial in that parents share knowledge and information regarding a whole range of subjects which in turn we as a school then share via our school community facebook page so all parents can access this information. It is also a great chance to meet parents in a similar situation in a relaxed environment and share their experiences.
Our first coffee morning session this term will be on Friday, 28th September at St Luke's between 10am - 11.30am, we hope to see our regulars and many more new faces.
On October 18th we will be running a training session alongside Whittington Health for parents around gastrostomy feeding and medication administration. This will take place between 10am - 12.00. We will confirm location very soon, watch this space.
