Parents joined forces with pupils for a spot of mini golf, plate decorating, monster making and cheerleading as part of a school’s drive to help break down barriers to learning.

To celebrate National Parents’ Week, Tollgate Primary, in Bury St Edmunds, organised the activities to acknowledge the hard work parents do, raise awareness of the importance of spending one-to-one time with a child and develop learning.

Some of the sessions were supported by specialist staff from the Bury St Edmunds Academy Trust including iPad sessions, craft workshops and a breakfast cafe.

Head Alison Earl said: “Through this special week of activities, we hope to break down any barriers that parents may have in an atmosphere of shared enjoyment and learning.”
