Hello my name is Jane and I am parent inclusion ambassador for the school.
It is a voluntary position which I have held for a couple of years with the support of the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (Lucy Thompson), PTA, Governors and Senior Leadership Team.
My daughter Chloe (who is registered blind and profoundly deaf) was included incredibly well at St Leonard’s Primary School and has now successfully transitioned to Isca. I am delighted to be carrying on in this role and hope our monthly meet ups over coffee and croissants attract even more people this year.
They are a chance for parent carers to meet, get support and think together about how our children can be included in all aspects of school life. We invite relevant professionals to some meetings and talk about school events / systems and procedures. We are keen to include as many parent carers as possible. There is no need for a formal diagnosis or obvious need - if your child struggles with school life for whatever reason please come along and join the conversation.
Our coffee and croissant monthly meetings are on the second Friday of the month in the after school / breakfast club café from 8.45 until 10.am.
I am always happy to meet parent carers new to the group in reception beforehand to help you feel as comfortable as possible.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like any further information.
