Parent Partnership

Tea and Talk


Hello, I’m Cathy Mew, I’m the Home School Link Worker (HSLW) and Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) at Elson Infant School. I organise Tea and Talk Sessions for parents every month. We meet on Tuesday mornings 9-10am for a cuppa and a chat and young children are welcome.

We work alongside the School Nursing Team who regularly attend and it is a great way to speak to them and ask advice. We also invite other professionals such as Lennox Centre, hc3s school lunches and Parent Voice.

We have a topic each month which is chosen in response to parent requests/needs and covers subjects such as sleep, anxiety and behaviour. Anything can be talked about in a safe supportive environment.  You can talk about any discussions either privately or in a group.

Please come along and join us, each month, all are welcome.
