Mind the Gap – for Y6 parents and carers: An evening with Katie Skinner
Our Mind the Gap project is helping thousands of young people in Wokingham and Bracknell through the transition from primary to secondary school this year. We know that this change affects the whole family, so we would love to get to know their parents and carers too, and offer you some expert support.
We’re running an online evening session just for parents this month. An expert in the field, Katie Skinner, will speak with us for around an hour about:
- The transition from primary to secondary school
- Anxiety in children
- Perspective taking
- Why children worry
Then we’ll have 45 minutes for questions and discussion.
If you have any specific questions you’d like Katie to address, please let us know in advance and we’ll pass them on.
When: Tuesday 29 June 2021 at 7pm
Where: Online (using Zoom)
How to attend: Email Michelle ASAP on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you the password to join the meeting.
Cost: It’s free to attend, but if you’d like to make a donation to Soulscape’s projects (including Mind the Gap) that would be very welcome. Please visit soulscape.org.uk/donate
Places are limited so please book yours as soon as you can.
