At Hannah More we are always keen to run courses and activities for parents and families. These are run by organisations like the Learning Communities team, or funded by grants that we apply for. Classes are free and there is a crèche as well. We hope to restart classes as soon as we can. We are also looking forward to the community room extension being completed!
Whilst school is closed, why not try the new Parent Gym online modules? These are some bite-size parenting hints especially for lockdown.You need to register, but it is all free. Here's the link: https://storefront.themindgym.com/store . Select the Parent Gym module at the top.

We also have some food boxes for families who need help; these are available from school on Tuesday afternoons from 2-4.
Community Room extension
Work is underway to build a new extension onto the community room, to provide a crèche, toilet and separate entrance. We were very pleased to receive ‘Community Infrastructure Levy’ funding, via the council, to complete this work. While the building work is happening we won’t be able to run parent activities in there. This is a really exciting project and will create a much more useful community space in the future! Click here for the architect's drawing. We will keep you updated abut the work as it happens.
When we are back at school, we plan to run:
HEALTHY COOKING FOR FAMILIES - WITH TRAVELLING KITCHEN
READING TRAINING FOR VOLUNTEERS
HELP YOUR CHILD WITH READING
ESOL and CONVERSATION CLUB
During Spring and Summer we book the WHOLE of Easton swimming pool for some Hannah More family fun swimming! We hope some of the 2020 sessions will run - wewill keep you updated.
