Dragonbirdfly theatre group have also been supporting parents and children, here is a link to their facebook page and information about how they are supporting you all:

  1. We are releasing daily videos in our Facebook group for parents to provide links between the 5 'Ways to Wellbeing' adopted by the NHS and the curriculum. 
  2. We're also providing advice for parents who children have ASD/ADHD and 'Top Tips' for those whose children are difficult to keep motivated and focused! 
  3. The main ethos of the group is to foster a mentoring community, where friends or other members of the school community known to the parents video call with their child each day to check in with how things are going. To guide the mentors, we suggest coaching questions and encourage them to talk about our 'daily challenge' with their mentees.
