VIRTUAL SUPPORT FOR PARENTS
At the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to run parent courses and coffee mornings. We really miss having you in school!
There are some online courses and workshops running that might be interesting or helpful to you at home until all children get back to full time school.
Have a look at these - for some you must register. No Cost to you
Screen time amongst young people has reportedly increased by 500% during lockdown, so keeping young people safe online has never been more important. Online issues such as bullying, hate speech, fake news, harassment and exposure to upsetting content have increased at an alarming rate during the pandemic.
During the 1 hour zoom webinar, Digital Awareness UK will talk through:
1. Popular online apps and digital wellbeing trends
2. Critical issues to be aware of
3. Practical steps to protect children from online risk and to encourage happy and healthy tech habits.
There will also be plenty of time to ask questions about any concerns you may have in the home around online safety.

A wonderful and committed group of parents have just completed a 6 week Parent Gym course run by Mrs Shear.
This was a course of six 2-hour workshops with "missions" to complete in between each. The aim of the course is to make sure parents
Week 1: Chat - how to communicate
Week 2: Love - how to balance warmth and discipline
Week 3: Behave - how to be consistent with limit setting
Week 4: Care - how to raise healthy children
Week 5: Discover - how to encourage learning
Week 6: Together - how to build a support network with parents and children
The parents feedback for this course was truly positive and all of them would recommend the course to other parents and wished they had found a the Parent Gym course when they first became parents. There will be further Parent Gym courses run across The Orion and Goldbeaters this year.
