24-Feb-21 Anna Freud Parent/Carer Support sessions

Dear Parents and Carers

Our school is offering support for parents and carers commencing in the form of a four session programme of reflective groups led by a trained facilitator. The theme of the group beginning this half term is ‘Parenting adolescents: reflecting on the challenges.’ The sessions will provide some knowledge and understanding of adolescent development and strategies to support your child through these challenging times.

This support is provided by Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF), a national charity for children and families with extensive involvement in supporting schools.

The sessions will take place online using the online platform Zoom and registration will be required in advance. Please note that places are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Registrations will be closed 24 hours ahead of the group start. If there is not sufficient interest then the group will not run and registrants will be advised.

Each group session will run for an hour on the following Wednesdays:

Feb 24, 2021 12:30pm – 1:30pm

Mar 3, 2021 12:30pm – 1:30pm

Mar 10, 2021 12:30pm – 1:30pm

Mar 17, 2021 12:30pm – 1:30pm
