Outreach for Parents

The Unicorn School has hosted evening seminars for parents of children at The Unicorn School and parents of children in the local community, demonstrating ways in which they can support their children’s literacy at home. 

Sessions are tailored for parents of either primary or secondary age children, and employ an innovative “carousel” format with parents rotating around 4 micro-workshops.

We have covered areas such as how to support children’s reading and spelling at home as well as their language and handwriting, using mind maps, developing higher order reading skills, using assistive technology, and supporting the learning of maths and science.

Those who have attended commented that the sessions were,

‘Incredibly informative with lots of ideas I could use at home with my child’

We are planning to extend Outreach for parents and carers and we would love for you to join us. As soon as we have some new dates for Outreach we will let you know, just email The Unicorn School office with your details so we can get back to you..
