At Westbury School we have a lot of contact with parents and carers throughout the year and towards the end of the summer term we invited them to come into school to speak to current class teachers and meet the staff their children would be with next year.
Lots of parents and carers came in and had a look through their child’s work, There were refreshments in the hall and some helpful reminders about the sorts of foods pupils should be bringing in their packed lunches.
Miss Wilkins collated information about the various support network available to children and families in Nottingham. This included information about health, counselling, self harm a
nd online safety, and attendance issues. Please contact the school if you would like any more information about these issues.
We also had an external provider to showcase the assisted technology available to Nottingham City children. Some of the items had a small charge and they included things such as calendars, timers, and things to help children and young adults to gain independence. School can provide more information and contact details if you are interested and want to find out more.
This is the first time we have held an afternoon like this and it proved very successful with both staff and parents. We have already planned a similar event for next year.
