Bridge the Gap Parent Workshop – Supporting an Anxious Child
We are delighted to announce that we are working with Bridge the Gap again this year. Bridge the Gap are a children’s mental health organisation based in Derby who are able to offer support to the parents of our pupils. We would like to invite the parents of pupils in any year group who are having to manage anxiety symptoms that are expressed by their children to attend the workshop.
Parents are invited to come to the school hall on the 3rd October 5-6pm to listen to the advice from Nikki Webster (a director at Bridge the Gap and the mental health lead) and a support colleague. They will run an hour’s workshop full of advice and support specifically tailored to parents who are supporting an anxious child.

This will be the second parent workshop that we have been able to offer to parents and carers. Bridge the Gap also attended West Park in May 2023 to run a workshop on exam stress that was well attended by parents and carers. We will also be running further parent workshops in the school year – one on the 12th December on Low Mood and Depression and one on the 30th January 2024 on Self Harm. We will send additional information regarding how to sign up for these sessions at a later date.
