Last year we held a number of events and courses.
In March, the PET organised a big breakfast for our parents and children. Ashlyns, the schools lunch provider worked hard to provide a delicious menu of full English breakfast and lots of other options.
“Let’s Get Chatting”
Last summer we ran a six week course for parents who were interested in learning conversational English. The class provided a convenient and comfortable meeting place for parents with various levels of English to come together and look at books and learn how to use different words and understand their children better.
At the end of the six weeks, parents received a certificate, and were encouraged to attend ESOL classes, which the PET will be providing over the autumn term.
The St Peter’s Garden Party was a huge success. Each class held a stall and parents and children enjoyed bouncy castles, henna, a bbq and lots of other fun and games.
The cake competition in aid of McMillan coffee morning was well stocked with delicious cakes made by children and parents. The head and chair of governors had the tough tasting task, deciding on a winner!
This parenting course was well attended and run by the local authority parental engagement team. Feedback was very positive
