Family Learning – Literacy and Numeracy
Family Learning is offered throughout the year from Year R – Year 2 with Adult Community Learning. This gives 12 – 15 parents in each year group the opportunity to work with their child in order to find out how they can support their child at home and also improve their own skills.
Courses include ‘Preparing for SATs’, ‘Fun with Food’, ‘Play and Language’, ‘Welcome to Year R’.
If you are interested in attending any of the courses or have any concerns. Then please call the Family Workers on 01582 736529, or join us for a chat and refreshments on Thursday in the Woodland Room.
Friends of Foxdell PTA –
Foxdell Infant School and Community run a successful Parents,Teachers and Friends Association. ‘Friends of Foxdell’ meet termly, dates are published in our newsletter. As a parent or carer of a child in the school you are automatically a member of Friends of Foxdell . We are always seeking new members to attend our meetings and get involved, share ideas on how to benefit the school community. The Association frequently fundraise on behalf of the school and sometimes for charities. Funds raised are then allocated to causes that the PTA agree on together. These funds provide valuable services and equipment for our children. All members are encouraged to visit the PTA UK website in order to learn more about the role of the Association and how they can contribute.
Our most recent event held by Friends of Foxdell was the Christmas Fayre, which was a huge success and raised over £1000 of funds for the school.
