We will be holding our last parent support group of the year.  Sue Clark, our school nurse, will be there as usual to offer confidential advice to parents and carers of children with diagnosed and undiagnosed additional needs, or anyone who is concerned about their child’s development in any way.  We have also invited Kathryn Nightingale, additional needs family worker from the Children’s Centre.  Kathryn can support children of school age and their families and she will be joining us to talk about her role in more detail.

If you would like to talk to Sue and meet Kathryn, we would be very pleased to see you.  Younger children are welcome to.

Host Family – At home this Christmas?
Many international students at UK universities will be alone and would love to celebrate with you and your family. Inviting a student to stay will make them feel welcome here. Teach your children about other cultures, meet new people and make the world a little friendlier!

To learn more about volunteer hosting at Christmas or any weekend of the year, see www.hostuk.org or contact Mandy Talbott on 01472-851084.

Yours sincerely
