Parent Coffee Mornings

Coffee morning 1

All parents are welcome to come for a Friday morning coffee. There is always a short presentation (20 minutes). These include ways to really help support your child's learning at school, parenting advice and support and information about a wide range of things from safety to spellings and maths to mindfulness and more!

Friday mornings are always fun and very informal. There is lots of time to ask questions, share experiences and find out what is happening in school.

Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Carers, Aunties, Uncles and friends of the family are ALL welcome

Why come in for a coffee morning?

  • meet other parents
  • chat to your friends
  • celebrate that it is Friday
  • learn something new
  • feel involved in school life and up to date with what's going on
  • have some time just for you and feel great!

Please email the school office if you have a suggestion for future topics.
