Parent Workshops

At South Rise, we are committed to working closely with parents, carers and the wider community in supporting children’s learning needs at school and at home.

The attached timetable sets out information meetings we will be running for parents and carers during this academic year. These are open to all interested parties: parents of children at South Rise and beyond. All meetings are free of charge and are delivered in a relaxed, friendly way.

Our subject leaders have created some videos for parents that may have missed out on meetings that have taken place so far this year:
