Dear Parents/Carers,

MSHT Webinar Series for Parents of Children of Primary School Age

 

The MHST (Mental Health Support Team) are excited to be able to offer our school community a parent webinar series. These webinar Series will be offered via Zoom which will include the following topics:

 

  • Parent Self Care

  • ‘Good enough’ parent and child interactions

  • Managing routines for your child

  • Understanding and supporting your child with worries

 

You can opt in for whichever topic feels most appealing as each webinar can be a standalone Topic in and of itself. That being said, they have also designed the webinars so that it builds on the previous topic; for example, research shows that parents being mindful of their own emotional well-being through self care and parent/child  interactions (webinar 1 and 2) helps them to better understand and support their child through routines and addressing possible worries (Webinar 3 and 4).

 

Sadly the first session has already gone. The second session begins on 11th May. Each session will last up to 60 minutes and have an optional follow up 20 minutes for further questions/comments for those interested.

 

The scheduled dates, times and topics for your schools will be as follows:

Inclusion and Special Educational Needs (SEN)

 

At St. Patrick’s we celebrate that which brings us together; living in London, speaking English and of course our Catholic faith. We also celebrate all the differences of culture and language that enrich our community.

 

We are committed to the inclusion of all children with special educational needs. We monitor all children’s learning and behaviour carefully. Some of our children may need additional support during their time at the school. If parents or staff have any concerns this is immediately discussed and together an individual programme to address the needs of the child is devised. The school may seek support from outside agencies. The child’s programme of support is regularly reviewed and parents’ views are sought at each stage. In other parts of the school we identify children to participate in “catch up” programmes in English and Mathematics.
