Information and Discussion Coffee Mornings


Put together by Support for Learning Teachers, this programme of free events is for all parents and carers who are interested in learning more about the topics covered. There is no need to book to attend, but if you have additional support requirements please let us know in advance.

The format of the coffee morning events will be:

  • A short presentation from an expert in the chosen field.
  • An open discussion involving everyone with tea/coffee.

The meetings will give parents and carers the opportunity to ask questions and to meet the experts as well as other families who face similar challenges.  We hope you find the sessions helpful and welcome your feedback.
