St Marie's Catholic Primary School

July 2018

It was great to see the 30 parents and guardians that came along to our parents year at St Marie’s Catholic Primary School in Sheffield. We met some parents whose children were new to the school, as well as some we had met before that came along for a refresher on how to talk to their children about keeping safe, their bodies and reproduction.
