Welcome to Hamilton School

Parents & Carers Meeting





Once every half term Hamilton School holds a parents/carers meeting. This is on a Tuesday morning. It starts at
9.45am and ends at 11.30am. We have tea, coffee, and biscuits. We discuss everything from sensory issues to home learning to taking your child to the supermarket. We look at places you can take the whole family and we get your input on upcoming events and what you would like to discuss at future meetings. We have guest speakers that come to discuss specific things. We have plenty of time to chat so you can ask us and each other any questions that you may have. Look out for the flyer in your child’s home school book for the next meeting

All meetings held upstairs @ 9.45am

Parents meeting 10th Jan 2017

We had a very good session today. We discussed the school taking steps to become a charity and what that might mean for the school, families and the local community. Parents showed a real interest in this and were very keen to start the process. More information will be coming soon!

We spoke in length about Cygnet (Autism Parenting course) and lots of Parents showed a big interest in this. We will be sending out letters soon to invite you to join us.

I stressed the importance of staff training and told the Parents about some of the training staff are currently participating in. We have an advanced autism course running as well as coaching and mentoring. This is a way for us to gain from each other’s experiences and share ideas and strategies.

We finally spoke about the different types of organisations that are out there for us to access. Parents had heard of organisations such as: Autism West Midlands and Resources for Autism, but not Cerebra, Contact a Family and Mencap. This will be something we explore again as we can get some of these agencies in to speak to Parents about the services we provide.

Thank you for continuing to support these meetings with your attendance. If there are particular topics you would like to discuss in the future please let me know.
