Parenting workshops in schools

Bringing schools and parents together improves academic and social success for children, which is why we developed our successful workshops that are endorsed by schools and nurseries.  Our workshops cover a variety of topics of interest to all parents and take place within the familiar environment of the school community. 

With the skills and strategies learned during the workshops, parents can help children grow in confidence and resilience.  We show parents how to get children to cooperate more, to communicate more, to try new things and to persevere – as well as how to do well academically and socially.  Parents learn how to support children in academic, artistic and sporting endeavours - without placing undue pressure on the children.  

Workshops are 90 minutes with a group size between 20 and 100.  See below for our list of workshops.  This is not a complete list as we are developing new topics all the time.

After the workshops finish, parents often get in touch with us and we enjoy hearing about different successes in school, new friendships and improvements to family life.

Workshops for school teachers

We offer workshops in schools for school teachers.  Teachers are dedicated, warm and empathetic professionals and we know how much is required of them when stimulating a class of children to learn. 

Teachers need to ensure children absorb the learning tasks required of them and learn how to interact with others.  At the same time, teachers need to care for the children and manage behaviour.   Teaching staff tell us that they find disciplining school children difficult, so in our workshops we show behaviour management techniques that bring out the best in children while ensuring discipline is positive and effective.

These workshops are developed in conjunction with experienced teachers and the content draws on learnings from child behaviour and child development research. 

Who attends

Teaching staff and assistants interested in developing further skills for the classroom

What Parents say

I regard the evening as an unqualified success! We are in the early stages of running such events and we had a good showing and plenty of appreciative comments. It worked well financially too with the school funding half and the other half being raised by ticketing. We will definitely run another one. Melissa was terrific and the whole event unfolded beautifully!

Thank you so very much on behalf of Highgate Pre-Prep for delivering a hugely informative evening for helping to get the best out of one's children. As you know this was our first of this kind and the feedback we have had already has been very enthusiastic. Parents definitely want help/advice and you delivered this in such a professional, humorous and kindly way that the message went down very well. As you realized we follow these principles already so it was super to hear them from another source

Janet Mills SENCO at Highgate Pre Prep school

Thank you very much for the inspiring talk that you gave to our parents. It really was first class and has enabled our parents to consider the importance of an emotional education in conjunction with an academic one. The feedback from our parents has all been resoundingly positive with a general cry for more workshops, so I feel sure we shall be working with you and The Parent Practice again
