Support for Families
We are fortunate at St Peter’s to have Ms Skuse, our Pastoral and Safeguarding Lead and Mrs Payne who provide additional support for our parents as well as our children.
We have a range of support available for families, including a really successful Nurture Parenting Programme which runs for 12 weeks with Ms Skuse and Mrs Payne. This course has run for the past 3 years and can provide parents/carers with a toolbox of ideas for managing children's behaviour. Over the weeks we come up with ideas to try at home for the whole family.
Watch this space for further information on Parental Support.

Many of parents/carers at our FAB (Families are Brilliant) Friday coffee morning expressed an interest in completing a Paediatric First Aid Course. In the academic year 2018/19 we offered them a chance to do this at Bishopsworth Childrens Centre delivered by the Learning Community Team.
Watch this space for details of upcoming courses from November 2019.
Christians against Poverty (CAP) are running 6 weekly sessions at SPARCS to help anyone with financial support- starting in September 2019
Extending adult learning
In partnership with the Learning Communities Team, we listen to parents/carers thoughts and organise courses to suit. One of the most popular courses is healthy cooking. IN 2018/2019 we had 14 parents start this fun course in term 3. This group researched recipes, planned, prepped and cooked! Some of their delicious food was sold in school at our events, eg Winter Wanderland.
Here is a photo of some children who had the chance to taste food cooked by their parents/carers last year.
Some of our happy cooks!
