“We have been avid Family Links supporters for six years and have trained four parent group leaders. Hundreds of our parents have done the Nurturing Programme. It supports our parents to take a consistent approach aligned with our approach in school and it has helped many of our parents to build their own confidence.”
Ed Vainker, CEO of Reach Foundation
We offer a whole-school approach which includes pupils, staff and parents/carers. We provide practical, interactive workshops and resources for school staff, as well as training to deliver our parenting programmes. With the understanding that feelings drive behaviours, this approach to developing an emotionally healthy learning community provides the foundations for good mental and emotional health and for learning.
