Kingswood Parent Support Group Tuesday 14th July from 7:30pm

Eryl Daniels, Vulnerable Groups Team Leader, is coming to talk to us on the topic "What does good Practice look like in school?" with discussion to follow.

It is a chance for us, the parents whose children may have benefited from her support over the years, to say "thank you" and good bye. There will be cake.

I do hope you can make it.

We would also like to share any tips and hints you may have for managing the summer holidays whether you have toddlers or teens.

Join us from 7:30pm.

With best wishes

Kathryn and Sara
