Wink Logo 2020

 At Wildern, we know that students learn best when the partnership between home and school is firmly embedded. To this end, over each academic year, we devise pasren knowledge evenings (WINK) that inform, guide and support parents with the upcoming year that their child is experiencing. These sessions include issues that affect children of a specific age and learning opportunities to support the learned curriculum.

Due to current guidance and regulations, we will be hosting a number of our planned WINK events virtually for the Autumn term. We will continue to monitor the guidance from the government and keep you updated on any necessary changes to the planned programme. 

Please see below for a programme of events planned for the Autumn term. We hope you can join us or click on the title to find a link to the recordings.
