• Parent Partnership

    I would like to introduce myself as the new Parent Partnership co-ordinator. My name is Deb Astles and I am a HLTA at with responsibility for CPD and Parent partnership. Let me explain a little about what my role as Parent partnership HLTA  within school covers.  As part of my role I will co-ordinate and provide information, support and advice to parents by:

    • Developing links to local organisations and services that can provide support to parents
    • Signposting useful websites and organisations to prospective, new and existing families of Ysgol Pen Coch children
    • Arranging regular workshops for parents/carers and their families on topics relevant to your children
    • Meeting with families to discuss specific needs or concerns
    • Getting parents and carers together socially to support one another
    • Supporting parents and families and your child in school

  • Spring/Summer news

    We had a very successful Easter craft afternoon in April which was attended by 10 families.  Lots of lovely language and interaction between parents and their children and it was a pleasure to see.  Well done to the pupils who made some fab artwork to take home!

    Our session with Vicky Hancock from Flintshire Parent Partnership was attended by 4 families and was very informative.  Vicky was able to give advice on the many services they can provide for families and I have information leaflets available in school if anyone would like one.  She talked about the new 'Additional learning needs (ALN) transformation programme' that will be coming into force and also left information with me about that.

    Our next session will be a visit from the co-ordinator of the Flintshire DAFFODILS support group - it would be lovely to see lots of parents there.  We also have a PECS/schedules support session planned and then to finish off the term a fab family picnic - we will order sunshine for that day!  The dates are below:

    Friday, May 26th - DAFFODILS

    Friday, June 16th - PECS/schedules support 

    Friday, July 7th - Summer picnic
