The Family Forum
The Family Forum is held on alternate Friday mornings. Each forum will have a focus, allowing us to share information on a range of different topics such as toileting, behaviour, self-help skills, sleep, etc. Families attend the forums they will find most helpful.
The forum may have guest speakers such as the trust's Occupational Therapists, Nurse, Dentist, and Speech and Language Therapists to discuss their role at the trust.
The meeting is a great opportunity to meet other parents from both The Avenue and Manor Schools.
The Family Group
The trust has a regular small group meeting for parents on alternate Friday mornings to the family forum. The aim is to provide a supportive group where parents can meet together over a coffee and:
- share ideas and resources in relation to their children’s development discuss issues they are facing and share the demands of parenting offer suggestions, support and advice to other parents
- receive additional advice and support from Sangita
Dates and information regarding The Family Forum and The Family Group will be sent to all parents via text. If you would like further information about any aspect of Family Support please contact Sangita via the Manor School office.
