Stoneyholme Community Primary School is not only there for children's educational needs and support but for parents and family too. We believe that in order to get the best from your child at school, we all need to work in partnership. English may not be the first language for a lot of our families and parenting differs from family to family. We want to help upskill the parents and carers to support their children to the best of their abilities.
ESOL at a very basic level suitable for people who have little English or have just arrived from abroad to settle in the UK. You will learn how to read and write your personal details, how to ring up your GP, go shopping and other such basic life skills that are required on a daily basis.
Academic Courses for adults whose first language is English, or Training with a view to gain employment.
We have a popular Coffee morning drop in on Thursday mornings, if you are not interested in doing any courses or classes and wish to meet other parents for various social activities.
Care in the Family(parent course)
The aim of this course is to improve the relationship between parents and child. Setting clear boundaries, achievable goals, lovingly nurturing, and supporting each child to make the best of the opportunities available. The course helps children to become powerful learners, promoting an understanding of the importants of social and emotional education.
It is a 5/6 week programme that looks at different strategies and techniques of dealing with your child’s behaviour. The course has sub-categories for example :- Early Years (reception age to Juniors), Parenting for Dads, Teenage Years, Anger Management, Drug proof your Kidz.
We have a number of parent volunteers working at school as welfare assistants, teaching assistants, etc. supporting the staff at school as well as gaining experience of working in a school environment for their own personal development.
Many of our volunteers have gone on to gain further qualifications or employment as a result of the skills and confidence acquired through this aspect of our work. In order to give the best possible support to our volunteers numbers are limited, however if this is an area of interest for you please contact Mrs Luanne Galawan.
We therefore run a number of highly popular courses for adults at Stoneyholme School.
