Sessions / Courses for parents

All of the schools in the Aylsham Cluster work very closely together to try to make learning continuous and to ensure that the transition between schools is as comfortable as possible.

We also provide courses and sessions for parents/carers throughout the cluster, listening very carefully to their views and concerns so that we can provide the extra help and support that will them to support their child’s learning and development.

Please look at this page regularly to see the sessions that are planned or to read about what parents have said about the sessions they have attended.

We try to organise sessions at different times of the day to enable as many people as possible to access them.

If you would like to know more about any of the courses or would like to suggest a topic that would be of interest to you please contact our Family Learning Co-ordinator, Monica Harding: mharding@aylshamhigh.norfolk.sch.uk
