Parent meetings

Although we are currently unable to do so, we usually run regular parents' workshops at Wellington.

There are other events, meetings and courses which take place at other times. Please look out for information on the board and in newsletters.

We often run family learning sessions as part of our clubs offer. Parents and children love the opportunity to learn together!

"I would like to thank Wellington School for arranging clubs for the parents and children to do activities together. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in designing t-shirts and painting canvasses on Wednesdays after school. I would like to thank the staff for making the sessions very enjoyable and fun for us. These activities have given me the opportunity to see how my daughter interacts in the school environment and enabled me to spend time with her at the place where she spends most of her time during the week. I hope to see more opportunities coming along for me to take part with my daughter at Wellington. Thank you."
