Our value of the month is Care


Thank you to everyone who attended our Family Learning Assembly on 8th July.

What is Family Learning?

We provide activities and courses in which families can learn together and have fun at the same time.

We also aim to provide opportunities for adults to find out more about how to support their children with their learning and improve family health and well being. 

We work in partnership with Family Learning at Worcestershire County Council and 10:32 Early Help at Tree Tops Children's Centre.
