“Every individual will develop knowledge, skills and understanding with confidence and belief to take in life's journey. Together we will excel, love and serve through the Catholic Faith without limitations.”

Family Learning

'Family Learning Course' 

took place during September and October 2016.

The free sessions were run by Leek College and St. Mary's staff every Wednesday afternoon, over a 7 week period.


Parents and Grandparents of Reception children were all invited to sign up. It gave them the  opportunity to work 1:1 with their child/ grandchild over the course of the afternoon. The course was based on the rights of the child - UNICEF. The afternoon was broken up into two parts: the first part was an opportunity for the adults to build up skills such as computer work and knowledge about a subject and during the second part of the afternoon they worked with their child/ grandchild.

Thank you to everyone who took part.
