Family Learning Programme
Perseid School offers many great opportunities for parents and carers to learn about the strategies that their children are using at school and to see videos of their progress.
Some of these strategies are presented in a group environment, where parents are invited to the Coffee Mornings that we feel would be beneficial for them to attend. This is a great opportunity to meet other parents of children using the same strategies. Coffee Mornings will also enable parents and carers to have training to use these strategies outside of school. They are generally run on Fridays, 9.30-11.30.
Currently, we run termly Coffee Mornings including: Signalong, Attention Autism, PECS, Social Stories, MOVE and Intensive Interaction. Our annual Coffee Mornings include Read, Write, Inc, Colourful Semantics, and TEACCH.
Tamil Fridays take place on the second Friday of every month, from 10.00 -11.15. All families are welcome to attend, however there is a Tamil speaking Teaching Assistant who also supports the group, along with Family Support Worker Tracey.
Family Fun Friday
Family Fun Friday is a drop in session from 11.00-12.30. This is an opportunity for parents of children who attend the Nursery and Reception to come along, with their child, to have a coffee, play and chat with other parents and pupils from Nursery Class. Family Fun Friday is run by our Family Support Worker, Tracey.
Parent Focus Group
Parent Focus Group is a parent group which is led by Clair Jacks from Merton CAMHS and Tracey, our Family Support Worker. Subjects such as Sensory Processing, difficulties with sleeping, restrictive diets, toileting and behaviour are covered. Clair takes up her post in October, and so more information will be sent out to parents nearer the time.
