At Riverside school we understand the importance of engaging with families and are passionate about ensuring our families are as involved as possible when it comes to their child’s curriculum.
Riverside Connect is one of many ways we engage with our families. Each month families are invited into school to listen to a new speaker. The topics are varied and after each session we ask for feedback to ensure we are providing appropriate and valuable information for all our families. The sessions are informal and run by our in house specialists and outside professionals where appropriate. Previous topics include Communication, Sensory Diets and Anxiety.
Riverside Connect is well attended each month and a reminder flyer and messages are circulated in advance. Event details are also on our school calendar and on our Facebook page.
Families that have attended Riverside Connect have said it has been valuable, not only to listen to the talks, but also to meet up with other families. We appreciate that opportunities for families of children with special needs to get together are so important, in that they provide opportunities to share ideas, thoughts and experiences.
