The Family Learning Signature Transition Project for Year 6 Families- Coming Soon!

The Family Learning Signature has proven itself to be a highly effective engagement and data gathering process, having been deployed successfully by schools and communities across the UK.

 

It is a methodology for engaging with families, gathering and analysing data and building consensus around a family’s capacity to support learning. Importantly, the Signature process helps to identify what can be done, and by whom, to strengthen that capacity. As part of a transition project we will be working with Year 6 families to support their transition from Primary to Secondary School. 

 

More information coming soon!

We have been delighted with the positive responses that we have received from all of the family classes, clubs and parent courses that we have held this term. It’s been fantastic to see so many parents get involved. Check out the feedback!

 

We thoroughly enjoyed pottery.’ ‘It was lovely to be able to get involved with activities with my child and other families.’

 

‘The family ICT course was useful for my son and improved his skills in ICT. I would like him to continue in something similar in the future.’

 

‘The families learning together course helped my family with their English. I loved meeting new friends.’

 

‘Thoroughly enjoyed the child psychology course and I’m looking forward to gaining a level 2 qualification.’
