The end of this term has seen us complete the first part of our new innovative school based project - 'Family Foundation'. Kicking off in October 2014, the project allows us to work in partnership with 3 primary schools in Llanelli, namely Bigyn, Halfway and Stebonheath, where we offer unique workshops to parents/carers, children and staff to further understand child behaviour and how to actively understand and support their needs.
The workshops run for 10 weeks where they run through a structured programme, based around attachment theory and helps parents gain a better understanding of their child's behaviour.
The programme is proving to be a major success, with everyone returning weekly to work through the sessions. The feedback from both parents/carers and the school is that the sessions are having a major impact on the children's behaviour. We are currently preparing for the next intake of children and their parents or carers, and hope that this work can continue to develop and progress to other schools in the near future.
