Adult Education classes
There is a wide variety of classes held throughout the school year. These are run together with Barnet & Southgate College. There is usually a crèche available for these classes. Look out for texts & posters around school and on our website under the parent section for information & then complete a form to register. Regular attendance is important for these classes as a certificate is given on completion.
Topics covered include; ESOL, Manicure Skills, Return to work skills, Keeping up with Maths, Keeping up with English, Paediatric First Aid, Working towards English GCSE.
Held alternate Wednesdays 9.15am, check notice boards for dates.
These are open to all parents and carers. A variety of specialist outside professionals, such as Doctors, Health Visitors, Police, School Nurse & others come and give their expertise on a wide range of topics. These include: Speech & Language Therapy, School curriculum subjects, Healthy Eating, Road Safety, Paediatric First Aid, ideas / activities for school holidays, Special Educational needs support at school, Head Teacher forums, Early Interventions, Esafety, FGM, Keeping your children safe, Parent Pay, My Maths and more!
We are in the process of setting up a new school PTA to help build our school community and bring all our families together. We hope that this will help us raise funds for the school and our children by running a range of fun and exciting activities over the school year for everyone to take part in. Please look out for dates of meetings and try and get involved, everyone is welcome!
These sessions are run throughout the school year for parents and carers to come into school and see what is going on in the classroom. The idea is that you join your child’s class for an hour and join in with learning a key skill to help your children at home. These include, reading, Maths, English and Science. The children love being able to show their adults how to do things!
We are always keen to have parents and carers involved in school life and if you are interested in volunteering your time please speak to the School office staff for information on how to do this.
