Coffee Mornings

All parents are welcome to come for a Friday morning coffee and breakfast in the school hall. 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!

 

Why come in for a coffee morning?

  • chat to your friends
  • have breakfast (for free!)
  • celebrate that it is Friday
  • learn something new
  • feel involved and up to date

Friday mornings are always fun and very informal. Parents can bring their toddlers and babies. There is lots of time to ask questions, share experiences and find out first what is happening in school.

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