Family learning- What is it?
Family learning exists to promote an enthusiasm for learning by encouraging families to learn together. It is a special time to spend with your child and enjoy learning new skills, and at the end of the course produce something you can both be proud of!
A broad range of courses are run, ranging from an assortment of Crafts, to Maths and English skills. We also provide a free crèche facility and a walking bus from Donnington Wood Junior School for the families who may need it.
This term we are hosting a 'Christmas Crafts'course and will be learning all sorts of skills from quilling to modelling clay.
The course will run from 7th of November for 5 weeks every Tuesday at 1:30. Enrollment forms have been sent home and additional forms will be outside of the Reception area. Please speak with Mrs Campbell or Mrs Butler if you have any queries.
Thank you to everyone who attended the 'Healthy Eating for Less' course. We had great fun with our tutor Penny and learnt lots of helpful things about healthy living!
The role of Pupil & Family Support is to support both children and their families across school and nursery.
Mrs Butler and Mrs Campbell work with children in small groups and on an individual basis in the Rainbow R. We actively encourage our parents to share any concerns you or your child may have whether they are school or home related. We will do our best to support and advice both children and parents and can signpost to other agencies who can offer additional support and advice as required.
Work with children covers many areas from raising self-esteem/confidence, friendship groups, relaxation/calming strategies, loss and bereavement, family/life issues etc.
Should you wish to speak to Mrs Butler or Mrs Campbell please feel free to call school or call in person.

Amazing Creations from Family Learning in 2016
During a previous sewing course, each parent designed and created an embroidery hoop, which was then used to create a group piece of art. The phrases on the hoops were chosen to promote positive messages to everyone in our school community and the words in the clouds were taken from responses our school questionnaire. Our parents worked hard on their display and showed some amazing creativity and talent!
We'd like to say a big thank you to all the parents and Sophie our tutor from Family Learning, who helped create it! The artwork has been displayed in the the school main entrance for all to see.
