Online results workshops for families

The Anna Freud Centre is offering free online workshops to parents and carers whose children have received exam results in August. These sessions apply particularly to parents and carers who:

  • are worried about their child’s reaction to their results, and want time to reflect and work out how best to continue supporting them
  • have ongoing concerns about the wellbeing of their child and are aware that new strategies may be required
  • feel that their child managed results week well, but want help in continuing to support them in the next stage of their education

The live sessions will be available online from Monday 16 August to Thursday 19 August, with two sessions per day at 12.30pm and 4.30pm. They will be run by Anna Freud Centre experts who have a background in both education and mental health support, giving some top tips on how best to support children and the opportunity to ask questions. Parents and carers can find out more and book onto the sessions here.
