Parents' Community Room
The Community Room is situated at the back of the school next to the visitor's car park. It was built by Trident as a place for community activities to take place. Mrs Lock the Parental Involvement Worker is based here.
The Community Room runs a varied programme of courses and activities for adults. Maths and English classes are for adults to improve their own skills and gain qualifications. These classes are open to the wider community. Other classes are for recreational purposes for parents to learn new skills and socialise e.g. crafts and aromatherapy.
Finally we run some classes and one off sessions for parents to be more involved in their child's education. Some sessions aim to provide information only whilst others offer parents the opportunity to do an activity with their child.
