What parents and carers need to know about early years providers, school and colleges during the Covid - 19 Outbreak. 

Family Learning can support parents struggling with homeschooling, right now

 

Please help us by inviting parents, carers and even grandparents to free courses and workshops running after half term. Family Learning’s usual partnership working, particularly with schools, has been seriously affected by COVID-19 and right now it’s a challenge to engage with families in need.


The programme starts from 24 February, offering a range of topics running up to 17 March.


Family Learning’s primary objectives are to increase the skills of the parent and increase the ability of the parent to support their children.


The Family Learning programme is free and provides support with parenting, wellbeing, phonics, English for EAL families, maths, science, behaviour and healthy eating. 


Qualified tutors work with parents, adapt their courses to meet needs, provide support and signpost to further support or learning. 


Wellbeing information for families has also been developed alongside a successful online course offer, which is helpful for so many Surrey families during these challenging times. 


Please share the information below and / or share the Surrey Adult Learning offers FREE workshops flyer

Parents/carers can enrol on up to three FREE courses this half term by visiting www.surreycc.gov.uk/familylearning or calling 0300 200 1044.


Here’s what one parent said about an ‘Exploring Behaviour Strategies’ course: 

“What a lovely course…. really constructive with lots of practical tips to go away and work on. I felt much more in control as a parent after last week’s class alone! Thank you for being so open and inclusive, and providing a safe environment for us parents to share experiences.”
