We offer a Learning Strategy and Wellbeing Session for parents/carers. When it is safe to do so you are invited to come along to an informal event where you can see some of the skills that we use with the students first hand, and have an opportunity to discuss any issues or concerns, with us and other parents. During the evening there will be a series of workshops on offer where revision techniques are discussed, along with strategies to encourage the organisation of homework, coursework and revision. Each workshop is specifically designed to cover the issues that arise at different stages of students education here at Belvidere. We offer many types of pastoral support at Belvidere which help our students develop strategies for coping with the challenges of teenage life; for building emotional resilience and managing their feelings and for attending well throughout their time at Belvidere. Members of the pastoral team will be present on the evening, offering workshops on selected themes for parents/carers.
