Family Learning is a programme delivered within schools. The aim is to create an environment to encourage families to spend quality time together and build relationships with other members in the school community.

Workshops

Groups have the opportunity to take part in arts and craft projects, learning about food/culture from around the world, playing team games, budgeting stress management, child & fuel poverty, Makaton sign language, music lessons and creative writing.

Community Spirit

Family Learning helps build a stronger school community by bringing people together. We currently run FL within St Benedict’s, Oakwood & St Maria Goretti Primary Schools. There are 149 individuals registered from 52 families.

Training

In conjunction with the workshops, adults can undergo certificated training with qualifications in First Aid & Food Hygiene. Throughout the 2-hour sessions the groups prepare, cook and enjoy a meal together. A total of 9 parents and carers have gained their First Aid certificates through Family Learning.

Days Out

Our groups have attended various trips including a visit to Paisley’s Winterfest at Christmas, with one parent commenting “Despite working fulltime I couldn’t afford this for my boys; this has been a wonderful Christmas treat and a great opportunity to spend quality time with them.
