Family Support and Wellbeing
Monthly Coffee Mornings
Our Family Support Workers hold monthly, informal Coffee Mornings on the first Thursday of each month at The Family Hub where parents/carers/families from both The Meadows and Springfield are welcome to call in for a chat, support and to share information/ideas with other families. Occasionally, there will be a focus to these Coffee Mornings and other agencies will also be on hand to offer information and support, we have recently had visits from Tinsdale Solicitors, Caudwell Children and Our Space. If you have any suggestions for future visits or would like to promote something yourself please get in touch.
The next meeting will be held on : Unfortunately we are unable to run these sessions due to the restrictions we currently have for visitors in school.
As always everyone is welcome; we always look forward to seeing as many parents and carers as are able to attend.If you are unable to attend any of these meetings, Julie or Kieron are available to meet with parents and carers at a mutually convenient time.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has experienced, any domestic abuse, run jointly between schools and Staffordshire Police.
