Parent Workshop ADHD

We will be holding a workshop for parents and carers about Managing ADHD on Wednesday 9th November. The session will be led by our Year 8 teacher Carly Norman and will take place from 9.15-10.45am at the school.

ADHD is a clearly defined clinical condition and not just a label for naughty or badly raised children. During this workshop, we’ll look at what ADHD actually is and we’ll explore helpful strategies to try at home when managing some of the most challenging symptoms of ADHD.

Staff will be offering a range of other workshops throughout the year, please look out for notices nearer the time to confirm times and dates.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
