How to communicate more effectively

How to raise healthy children
How to encourage learning
How to build a solid family support network
The programme allows parents the fantastic chance to make connections and establish a bonding network, something which I feel no other programme would allow.
The quality assurance processes outlined and evidenced are excellent, from recruitment, training, delivery and continuous assessment. Parent Gym plainly take quality assurance exceptionally seriously and have strong processes in place to ensure every parent receives a similar high quality learning experience.
Kensington Primary has moved from RI to outstanding in less than three years but is now setting its sights even higher
The school works with some of its most vulnerable families to help them develop their parenting skills via the national Parent Gym initiative. This is a series of six two-hour workshops delivered by a trained member of staff. The sessions cover things like how to communicate, balancing warmth and discipline and how to encourage learning.
“The feedback we get is that it can be transformative. Some parents, and their children as a result, have had their lives turned round.”
We have now run nine Parent Gym programmes. The impact of the course can be seen with improved behaviour of the children in school. We hope to continue to work with Parent Gym for a very long time.
