Upcoming Parent Workshop  

Y6 Transition Workshop for Parents – Monday 20 June 2022

In collaboration with Martin Waters our Mental Health Practitioner and Alice from Open Minds we are offering a parent workshop to our Y6 parents to provide resources and guidance to support your child’s transition to secondary school.

The workshop is an information session with the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session. It will run for around an hour and will also include some activities and discussions. The aims of the session include the following:

  • To understand the impact of transition.
  • To understand why a positive transition is important and the benefits of this.
  • To understand some of the changes to your child’s development.
  • To know how a parent/carer can support the transition to secondary school.
