Meerkats - Family Separation Support.

 

We will be running a support group for children who have experienced separation within their family.

The aim of the group is to give the children an opportunity to talk about their feelings, understand their emotions, develop coping strategies and think about the changes in their family.

The program will run for 6 weeks during school time. Each session will have a play-based activity, allowing children to have fun in a relaxed safe environment.

If you feel your child may benefit from this group, or you would like further information please complete the form below and return by Friday 27th September 2019. Alternatively speak to Jane Gilbert or Sarah Green on 216160 or email janegilbert@mpsplymouth.net

Label Planet
To help you  and your children keep their belongings safe why not invest in some stick in labels from label planet.
To order just click the label planet link above, choose from the range of options and your order will be delivered to you at home within a few days.
With almost 700 pupils in school all wearing similar items of sweatshirts, coats trousers PE clothes it is inevitable that some things will escape them. Clothes that are not labelled cannot easily be returned and in fact every term we dispose of vast quantities of clothes that are  never claimed. Clear labelling could in fact save you money and allow children to independently look after their belongings. 
Ordering through our link will also earn the PTFA a higher level of commission so your children will benefit in more ways than one.
Please quote our fundraising number -13668 when placing an order for us to receive the commission.
