Testimonials and Reviews

We love the vast range of programmes on offer and so do the families. The sessions are always very popular and well organised and resourced. We get excellent feedback from all families involved. They are a very valuable resource that give practical ideas of how to play and learn with your child in a fun but educational manner at home.

The family learning sessions are a wonderful addition to the family support that we offer to parents and carers within our school. The staff are highly trained and deliver wonderful sessions that parents have fed back very positively about. We are looking forward to continuing working with the CLC to deliver further sessions next academic year.

Sitwell Infant School

It was a great turn-out of parents, and they and the children loved it and have produced some beautiful work to be rightly proud of. Once again your Family Learning team has provided another superb experience for children and families and inspired parents to be more involved and immersed in their children’s learning. This is just what we need and it is much appreciated.

Headteacher. Kiveton Park Meadows Junior School

Rotherham CLC has been a key contributor to a huge turnaround at our school when looking at parental engagement. 12 months ago our parents didn't want to come into school as they had negative experiences within our setting. Now, after 1 months of engaging, interactive and inspiring activities we have seen parental engagement increase - not only in the CLC workshops but at our own workshops and also at parents evening and whole school events. The CLC is managed by Trish , who goes above and beyond for schools. Trish and her team deliver amazing sessions to all our parents and also deal with our challenging parents in an approachable and sensitive way which means they feel engaged. We are so fortunate to have the CLC resource and I would recommend them to any school. The service we receive from all the team is outstanding.

Fabulous sessions provided by amazing staff over the years. Excellent and fresh ideas for each session. Tailored well to different ages - and will plan according to school topic. Resources are creative and staff are friendly and chatty. We always receive positive feedback as well as a full session every time we advertise these free exciting sessions. Vital to our school as children and parents love coming! Brilliant work!

Brinsworth Manor Infant School

This year we have planned in sessions for all Key Stages so that parents of children of all ages have been involved. We have been able to link the sessions to our projects to strengthen the link between home and school learning and have also targeted particular year group issues for example low reading outcomes in Y1 linked to the bringing books to life session. The sessions are always well organised, resourced and led and are always a positive experience for the children, parents and the school.

Blackburn Primary School

The sessions have been very well attended by our parents and we have received numerous positive comments about how they enjoyed the sessions and the opportunities to work with their children. Many parents have Tweeted to our school page after a Family Learning session, sharing what they had created along with comments on how fun and enjoyable the activities were.
