Course Information for Parents

Actions for Parents:

  • Pre-Course Form: It is really important for us to have emergency contact details and information on your child’s allergies/intolerances and any additional needs. Please make sure you have filled this in. You should have received an email with a link to this when you booked.
  • Parent Class: It’s really important for you as parents to know what we’re doing on each course, so that you can support your child’s learning at home. Therefore parents and carers are invited to attend or watch a 45-minute parent class. This class includes an overview of what your child will cover, one of our key frameworks, Growth Mindset and on-going strategies for how this learning can be supported at home. Louise Treherne, our Head of Character Education will be delivering the class. Please note that due to current governmental guidelines, a recorded webinar will be sent to you.
  • Written permission: We require written (email) permission in the following circumstances:
    • To administer any medicine to your child, including medicine which the child is permitted to self-administer
    • To allow your child to leave the premises on their own
    • To allow your child to leave the premises with another parent/carer

 

Points to remember:

  • We do not provide lunch, so please provide your child with a snack, a packed lunch and a water bottle (there is drinking water on site). Lunches should be nut free.
  • There will activities each day, so please have your child wear trainers or something suitable for running around. We also recommend bringing a raincoat in case it is raining.
