General Health and Wellbeing
Supporting young people through the transition from childhood to adolescence and beyond is a challenge faced by parents and teachers alike. We have run evening workshops to help you to understand how the teenage brain develops and the effect this can have on behaviour; to know how the school’s curriculum seeks to support your child; to hear some practical advice on how to help support your child in their teenage years. The Power points used during these evenings are accessible below:
