Course date Thursday 5th October - Working with and engaging families from Central and Eastern Europe


14 September 2017

Join our workshop on how schools and settings can better engage with the Central and Eastern European community. Based on our experiences we have identified three key areas that present the main issues in supporting families new to the UK – attendance, communication and social integration. Getting it right in all three areas is vital in the ensuring that children settle into school and achieve their full potential. 

Audience: Leaders, managers, teachers, practitioners, childminders.

Date: Thursday 5th October 2017 9.00 – 11.00am.

Cost: The course is free.

Venue: St Edmund’s Nursery School & Children’s Centre Washington Street, Girlington Bradford BD8 9QW

St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre has been selected as a Centre of Good Practice for New Arrivals to provide a programme of support for schools with children who are new to English and/or new to education. Around 10% of the local community are from a Central or Eastern European background. These families are relatively transient with many families staying only a short time in the local area.
