Family Nurture 10 week group

“The atmosphere was really relaxed. No-one judged anyone and everyone was listened to and respected.”


"This game me back my power as a parent and made the WHOLE FAMILY happier."


As parents and carers we all know how incredible and amazing family life can be. We also recognise that this comes with challenges, difficult days and moments of extreme frustration! This has been more true then ever over the last 18 months.


As a school we want to do all we can to support you with what family life throws at you.


With this in mind we are really excited to offer the Family Links Nurturing Programme for parents and carers. This brilliant programme supports by building on what you are already doing and developing new strategies. Over the course of 10 weekly two hour sessions it focuses on themes such as developing empathy within families, understanding our feelings (for parents and children), choice and consequences for children and how to make sure we look after ourselves as parents.


The programme will run on Thursdays between 1pm and 3pm for 10 weeks with the first session on Thursday 3rd March. Mr Anderson and Mrs Howell will be the ones taking you through the 10 weeks.

Mr Anderson has been lucky enough to have completed this course with over 40 families and the impact was extraordinary. He personally uses many of the techniques and strategies with his own children at home on a daily basis!


From this experience what parents and carers most like about the Nurturing programme is it is a bit of time for themselves to speak with others, without judgement, about home. It enables you to realise that (despite what may sometimes be seen on social media) all families have challenges and with just a few quick and simple tweaks we can make our family time even better for us all!


If you have any questions or want any further information then please speak to Mr Anderson or Mrs Howell in the playground or leave a message at the office and we will get back to you!


Thank you,

Mr Anderson and Mrs Howell.


PS There will be biscuits, tea and coffee for all at each session!!
