For Your Information
The summer holidays will finally be here at 215pm on Tuesday 23rd July and hopefully the sun will make an extended appearance too!
 
There are lots of things available to families throughout the summer and we have displayed this information on the noticeboards in the alleyway between the main gates to both sites. We have listed activities to do, cheap or free places for children to eat and information about courses happening for families supporting children with additional needs. Don't forget to take a photo when you are collecting your child at the end of the day!
 
We are aware that the holidays are not always easy as normal routine and everyday life is suddenly changed (and that's for children too, not just us adults!). If you are finding it challenging, then please visit our website page which lists the support agencies available: Signposts to support home adults
 
We hope you all have an enjoyable break and can't wait to see you back on Wednesday 4th September for another exciting year ahead!

Free Mental Health First Aid training

By Mrs Jeffries, in SEND SUPPORT - Friday, 15 December 2023

The NHS are running a FREE one day course on mental health first aid training for parents and carers of children between 8 and 18 years old. It is on 30th January 930am-4pm and is taking place at Robertson House on Gunnelswood Road in Stevenage. 

Take a look at the attached pdf to find out more about the course structure and let us know if you attend. It'd be great to get people who attend to share their thoughts at a future coffee session. The content looks great and so useful! 

You will learn an understanding of common mental health issues and how they affect young people; ability to spot signs and guide to a place of support; knowledge and confidence to advocate for mental health awareness; and skills to support positive wellbeing.
