Happy You Happy Kids - Communication Programme for Parents & Carers

Would you like your daily routines with your child/ren to:

  • Be less stressful?
  • Run more smoothly?
  • Have positive outcomes?

If you answered “yes” to any of these, Happy Kids Happy You would help!
The programme, based on the successful book by Sue Beever, looks at how we communicate with our children and how our words, body language and even thoughts can impact on their behaviour.

The programme has shown to significantly reduce the daily hassles for those participating!

With 26 new “tools” to add to your parenting toolkit, they allow you to develop solutions that work for you and your family.

The programme runs at the start of each school year - contact Jackie Rosano if you are interested in the programme or for more information.

Helping Your Child to Bounce Back - Resilience Workshop

Resilience means being able to ‘bounce back’ from adversity. Resilient children and young people have the ability to cope, minimise and overcome the effects of adversity. 

We can’t protect children and young people from every difficulty in life but we can help them to cope more effectively with the challenges they encounter by building their resilience. By helping them cope with hardships, disappointments and frustrations, we can help them build good resilience to help them cope with all that life has to offer.

Our Helping Your Child to Bounce Back workshop looks at how we can teach our children the skills they will need need to cope. In our experience, the more resilience a child has, the greater their capacity to get on with life and bounce back from adversity.

A number of workshops will be delivered In February and March of each school year. If you are interested and would like to reserve a place please contact Jackie Rosano.

Building Bridges Counselling

We are very fortunate to have access to a service called Building Bridges who support parents and carers. We are able to access counselling and this can take place in school.

The aim of Building Bridges is to support families mental and emotional well being through a free therapeutic, mentoring and skills development service. Over the last couple of years parents have found access to their service valuable and currently the service is free.

If you feel you may benefit from the service Building Bridges can offer please contact Jackie Rosano.

Referrals to other supportive agencies and organisations

Sometimes we might just need a bit more help to support our children. Here at school we can make referrals to other agencies and organisations such as our School Nurse Team, Children's Centre Support Team, Early Help and more.

If you have a concern about your child or feel you need more support do come and talk to Jackie Rosano.
