Autism support for parents

Established in May 2017, we are a group of parents/ carers for children on the autistic spectrum. We meet monthly on a Friday evening in Wollaton to offer support and share advice. We are here for parents and carers at all stages of their journey, whether you have a child with a diagnosis or not (as we understand the process of getting an assessment/ diagnosis can be a lonely one).
To date we have 30 members from Wollaton and the surrounding areas with children in both special and mainstream schools. We have a Whatsapp group, where people share information and advice and offer support. Many new connections and friendships have been made for both adults and children and there are now regular or one-off activities which are open to all. We have started to work alongside some schools and members support each other with school meetings as we believe supportive and positive relationships between school staff and families are always in the best interests of our children.

The Farnborough Academy Pupil Leadership Team With Chris Cohen

The Farnborough Academy Pupil Leadership team were really fortunate to have some expert words of wisdom this week from Forest captain Chris Cohen on leadership skills.
Chris spoke about managing a team of people, leading by example and setting high expectations. A fantastic opportunity and some excellent advice.


Student Leadership Conference


Tuesday 14 November 2017 - The Farnborough Academy Key Stage 4 Rugby team went to the Melish Rugby Club to play in the County Cup which we won last season. 

There were some really good performances from the Farnborough team. England Rugby Union representatives spoke of Liam Chambers and Ardena Wendsa playing really well and asked which clubs they played for and recommended they went to the NLD Squad which is a great thing for the 2 students.

 Thursday 23 November 2017 - the Key Stage 3 Girls Rugby Team from The Farnborough Academy are going to Arnold Hill Academy for a training session. Both schools are teaming up so they can play matches for the first time and both schools can put out a Girls Rugby team.

 We are looking at dates for Key Stage 4 TAG Rugby trials which are a first for everybody and also looking at Leicester Tigers coming in again for another coaching day which was a great success last year.
