To launch the Cafes for All whole school approach in Liverpool this autumn, we are delighted to be able to offer schools the opportunity  to send 2 members of staff on this training day for the normal individual delegate cost of £175. We advise that a member of the Senior Leadership attends as well as  a member  of  staff involved in pastoral and /or family support.

“The cafés have provided opportunities for more informal and relaxed interaction between staff and parents, particularly important in older year groups where there are fewer opportunities for daily contact. Parents have increasingly recognised their own role as educators and come to understand how important and valued this role is. Parents and carers report they have developed their own skills; learning new methods to solve mathematical problems, discussing books in different ways and gaining ideas for home learning. Our children, from nursery to year six, are motivated and enthused by café-learning; showing their parents how they do things in school and taking pride in sharing their work with their families.”
