The Bridge London

“The atmosphere at The Bridge was to me, always like visiting members of your own family”

The Parent Support Group – Primary

The Parent Support Group on the primary site was set up to provide a strong and consistent link between staff and parents. The aim of this group is to offer a friendly, welcoming environment in which parents feel comfortable and are able to discuss any concerns or issues outside of school.

The Parent Group that meets on the primary site is available for all parents, not just those with primary age children. This group runs sessions on subjects requested by parents relating to their children’s education. Examples include communication [signing and PECS resource making], Personal, Social and Health Education and Sensory Integration. They also go on trips to such places as The London Eye, Hyde Park, Covent Garden and spend time in school jewellery-making, glass-painting and bag-making.

The Parent Group encourages parents to develop their own skills and to give them the confidence to move forward with their own learning.
