The Family Worker team is:

Hopefully most of you will have met at least one  of us at Foxdell. We are located in The Family Room and work within the school as well.

We provide a vital link between families and school. Throughout the school year we run a range of events in the Family Room.

 

Summer Term 2017

We All Like To Be Beside The Seaside!!

We are excited to be able to take our families to Great Yarmouth Beach on Saturday 15th July. Families will be collected from and dropped off to Foxdell Junior School at designated times for the cost of £12 a seat. Most tickets have been booked and paid for but there are still a number of seats available. Please contact the family workers for further information but be quick! As places are going fast!

 

Let’s get Positive about Parenting!!

This term we will be running a very useful positive parenting course.  The course will be run by an experienced tutor that delivers ‘Strengthening Families’ courses. It will provide an opportunity for parents/carers to enhance the positive practices that they are already implementing in their family structure as well as inspire them to learn from the experience of others and receive information on well researched and effective methods. We aim to begin this course in May, so look out for information that we will be sending out soon! 

 

ICT – As Easy as ABC!

From Friday 5th May we aim to run weekly ICT lessons for parents/carers. These lessons will run every Friday from 9am to 11am in the ICT suite. The lessons are aimed at learners that wish to improve their English skills as well as their ICT skills and will cover subjects such as booking essential appointments online, creating and sending email, using the internet safely and much more. Look out for letters and contact the family workers if you require further information.

 

The Circus is Coming to Town!! 

Foxdell Junior School will be hosting a visiting circus on Wednesday 12th July! We will have a morning and evening performance with heaps of fun activities and performances for the whole family to enjoy. The circus ( which is without animals) will feature a ‘Magical’ theme and as well as an interactive show, there will be food and drink for sale as well as circus memorabilia available to purchase. Tickets cost £5 a person and is open to all members of  Foxdell families. Tickets will be on sale from 5th June. 

Please feel free to come and see us for a chat.
