The Bridge London

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

The Parent Support Group – Secondary

The Parent Group at the secondary site meet six times a year to discuss a variety of topics which include: how to access clubs, after school services and direct payments, communication difficulties and how to overcome them, sex education, looking at behaviour as a means of communication, creating and maintaining friendships, Makaton and PECS and extended school services.

Translators are provided for parents who request this service and where possible a guest speaker or representative from an outside agency connected with the topic under discussion will come and speak at the meetings.

From these meetings many parents have made connections with each other and go on to meet regularly away from school. If parents would like to attend the Parents Group at secondary they should contact phyllis.miller@thebridge.islington.sch.uk

Sixth form parents meet separately six times a year discussing transition and preparation for life after school. Contact sharon.rabinarain@thebridge.islington.sch.uk
