“Parents, carers and family members are by far the most important influence on
their children’s lives. They influence how young people think about education, their future and society. Therefore their support for schools and engagement in
learning is crucial.”
(Harris, Andrew-Power and Goodhall, 2008)
“Having been involved with XTND for some months now, I feel that I am not only more able to enjoy the family time that we have together, by using ideas from our sessions – but also more equipped to offer my daughter the support she needs to get more out of learning” Rachel, Parent
“I really enjoyed the course, I learnt how to make some meals from scratch, I can use these at home with the kids” Healthy Cookery Parent
