Appointments with all teachers are available on Tuesday 21st March. Appointments with Years 4 and 6 teachers are also available on Thursday 23rd March. Appointments with Reception, Years 1,2,3 and 5 teachers are available on Thursday 30th March. The days are split due to teachers being on courses.
Invitation to join us at: Supporting parents and carers concerned about a child’s emotional wellbeing or mental health event.
We know that 1 in 10 children and young people aged 5 – 16 suffer from a diagnosable mental health condition – that is around three children in every class. Nearly 80,000 children and young people in the UK suffer from severe depression.
With this in mind, the Safeguarding Children Board at Cheshire West worked with young people to find out what more we can do to help those experiencing emotional wellbeing difficulties. They told us to offer increased support to the parents and carers who help them to cope with their feelings on a daily basis.
So, supported by colleagues in Cheshire West Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and the National Charity Young Minds we are pleased to be able to offer a one-day event specifically for parents and carers to attend.
The event will take place at Civic Hall, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, CH65 0AZ on Friday 24th March 2017 9:45am – 3pm.
The day will provide lots of information, practical advice, and access to services that can answer questions and provide ongoing help to families. There is no expectation that parents/carers discuss their children’s personal circumstances, but for those who wish to professionals will be available throughout the day.
To request a place, contact the LSCB by phone (0151 35 66614); or via email at LSCBtrainingandevents@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk You can also ask a professional working with you to apply on your behalf (please note they will need to provide your name and contact details so that we can confirm your place with you).
The event is free of charge. Let us know at the point of booking if you require transport to the event. There will be refreshments and lunch provided. Please note the event is not suitable for children, of any age, to attend. If you have any questions, please contact Sian Jones on 07584206913
NSPCC Event for Parents- Thursday 23rd March, 2pm
To children, online life is real life. There is no real difference between the people they speak to on social media and their friends in school. Families often think they know exactly what their children get up to online, and that they understand all the apps and sites their children use. Please book your place on https://lowerpeover.parentseveningsystem.co.uk
Maths Evening Workshop for parents/carers….
This year FLPS have kindly agreed to support the ‘Primary Maths Reasoning Project’ which will directly benefit all children in school. I have arranged for Toni Reid, maths consultant, to introduce this project to parents and demonstrate strategies used. The event will be in school on Tuesday 14th March (from 6-7.30 pm). Please log on to https://lowerpeover.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your place. This event will be paid for by the school fund. This workshop is suitable for parents of ALL age groups.
To date, 30 parents have registered their interest.
Thank you for all your support during this half term. School closes on Friday 17th February and opens on Monday 27th February.
