Café Plus® is designed to be run by SENDCos for parents/carers with the timings, session length and frequency to be decided by each school . It builds on a school’s current parental engagement practice (e.g. Reading Cafes, Cafes for All®) with the timings and frequency of the Café Plus sessions to be decided by each school. Café Plus® uses a proactive group approach, benefitting both parents/families and school staff. The training explores how sessions can take place both face to face and remotely so that all families are able to engage with the support and become enabled to use this. The half day training is followed by a one hour online discussion a term later to share progress and ideas.
