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.

Courses available

In partnership with the Learning Communities team, we listened to parents/carers thoughts and organise courses to suit. One of the most popular courses is cooking. Last year 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.


At the moment (June 2019) we have a healthy cooking course running in school. Its a great chance to get together with other parents/carers and chat as we cook. Have a look at what we've made in this week:



Some of our happy cooks!
