Free family learning courses

Family learning courses in schools 

We run free family learning courses in several schools across Camden.  Parents and carers discover what their children are learning at school and get to create and take away fun activities and games that make learning fun, allowing them to support their children at home with maths and English. 

For more information about which schools are involved, look out for a flyer, ask in your school or email perin.sarosh@camden.gov.uk
