Family Learning Support

We offer a variety of events and learning courses at Torre to support our families.

Every term, we welcome a Family Learning Tutor from South Devon College. This tutor then runs one of a variety of free courses for our families. Courses run for two hours, one afternoon or one morning for three, six or twelve weeks. The following Family Learning courses have proved popular with our families: “Story Boxes” Lifting the Lid on Storytelling, Keeping up with the Children: “Fun with Numbers”, Keeping up with the Children : Literacy and “Starting School.”

Up to twelve parents attend each course with a free crèche, at school, providing care for babies and preschool children. A favourite part of each Family Learning course session is when our children join their parents to work and play together.

Courses are advertised by posters around the school site, on the Community Notice board (next to the path into school) and on the school website. Course application forms, requesting a place for an adult on the course and a crèche place, are sent out in book bags. So do keep a look out and come and join us if you are able.
