Nursery Stay and Play




If you are interested in attending any of these workshops, virtually via GoogleMeets, please email the office. They will forward your message on to Rosie, who will then be in touch with you to arrange. If a workshop is suitable for you, due to your child's needs, you will be invited to attend by the professional that is leading the workshop, at points throughout the year.

Parent Workshops

Some of these strategies are presented in a group environment, where parents are invited to the workshops 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. Parent Workshops 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 workshops including: Signalong, Attention Autism, PECS, Social Stories, MOVE and Intensive Interaction. Our annual Coffee Mornings include Read, Write, Inc, Colourful Semantics, and TEACCH.

Tamil Friday

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.

Stay and Play

Stay and Play is a drop in session from 11.00-12.30. This is an opportunity for parents and carers of children who attend the Nursery Class to come along, with their child and siblings, to have a coffee, play and chat with other parents and pupils from Nursery Class. Stay and Play is run by our Family Support Worker, Tracey, and Nursery Class Teacher, Rosie.

Helping Hands

Helping Hands is a workshop for parents and carers of pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1. It involves helping to make resources for the pupils at Perseid, such as PECS or symbols, whilst being in a relaxed environment where you can meet with other parents and careers from Perseid, and share your experiences with others.​

 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.
