We're really pleased to be able to announce officially (at last!) that we have a new permanent manager here at School for Parents to keep us all in order! Nathalie Bailey-Flitter takes up her post on 5 September bringing a wealth of Early Years experience and tons of other amazing skills with her. Nathalie also ran the London Marathon for our charity in April and helped us more recently with the M&S bag-pack. In the meantime, our interim manager, Claire Richmond, is doing a fantastic job!

Not content with helping on our Cherub's Ball 'committee' - our amazing mum, Heather Anthony, is also taking on the tough 'Race the Train' event in Wales on 20 August with her friend Lucy Rose for School for Parents! Please give them a helping hand if you can, it sounds pretty daunting to us!

Do you have any old football boots you'd like to donate and help support Sfp ? For each pair of football boots donated Field Sport Management will re sell each pair for £5 ! Thanks to Edwalton Cavaliers FC coach Adrian Churchett for nominating our charity to Richard Hipkiss from Field Sport Management who has set up two collection points at the below venues in Clifton and Rushcliffe Leisure Centre - or alternatively drop them into Sfp .

It was a bit of an emotional Trustee meeting today as we said goodbye to Caroline Newton who has been a Trustee of School for Parents for the past 15 years (and our Chair of Trustees for 5 years). Caroline said: "Today I said goodbye to the Board of School for Parents, a trustee for 15 years and Chair for the last five, where did those years go!! I'm sad to be farewelling friends but its good to leave the charity with a strong team in place. Thanks to everybody who has made working with the School such a pleasurable experience. All you guys...the Board, staff, parents. and of course, the children, have made it a joy:) Good luck with it all xxx." Caroline, we will miss you and thank you for your dedication and unstinting commitment to our charity. We wish you every success in the development of your centre in Kenya supporting disabled children - For details of our Board of Trustees and our new Chair, Tony Bates, please visit our website -

Support Case Study

‘I was delighted to be asked to support School for Parents. What inspires me is that every day each of the children overcomes huge obstacles, learning to do things most of us take for granted – they don’t realise it though; to them it’s all fun!
