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.

Parents’ feedback

“Very useful. So comprehensive and complete that [the parents talk] left me with no questions! Thank you.” Ana Santiago, Parent.

“The presentation was very good, very clear and straight to the point. Easy to follow and very happy about the stages of the topics done according to age groups.” Elizabeth Mwakawamfurs, Parent.
