Oldham Council have been continuing to work with schools and have recognised that resilience is a difficulty at the present time, particularly when families are all at home together. They have been working with one of their partners, Bounce Forward, who have delivered the PENN Resilience training programme in Oldham, to see how we can best support parents and families to support children during this challenging time. Attached is an exciting, free opportunity for Oldham parents
Bounce Forward Raising Resilience- Free Parents Online Course has now been set up for ALL PARENTS in Oldham. Bounce Forward Link
There are three different courses with the firststarting on Monday 20th April. Parents will book on the course directly with Bounce Forward (please see leaflet attached).
The aim of the course is to ease some of the strain caused by families staying home. The sessions will provide tools and resources for parents and children to build resilience and use the current situation as a learning opportunity that will help right now and into the future. The sessions will be useful for all parents who want to learn resilience skills. The downloadable worksheets are designed for children aged nine and above.
