Partnership with Parents

Family Learning

Our Family Learning workshops are provided by Essex County Council and are free to attend.  They are open to parents, grandparents and carers of PTM pupils.  The sessions take place in our Hive meeting room and a crèche is available for younger children.  We also provide refreshments for those attending.

Workshops are advertised via ParentMail and our school website where you will find further information on how to reserve a place.  Parents who have attended previous Family Learning sessions have told us how enjoyable they were; why not come along to one of our workshops and see for yourself!
