John Ruskin College Hosts Successful SEND Parent Event

Date: 15 November 2023

On November 14, JRC held a heartwarming and successful Parent Event, bringing together parents, carers, and the college community to celebrate the strengths and successes of the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) provision.

The event aimed to amplify the voices of parents and carers, offering them a platform to express their thoughts on what they appreciate about John Ruskin College SEND provision and to contribute their views and ideas for future improvements. The atmosphere was charged with positivity as attendees shared their insights, encouraging a sense of community and collaboration.


The SEND students played a pivotal role in ensuring the event's success. They demonstrated their skills and commitment by taking on various responsibilities, including preparing and serving refreshments, distributing surveys, and assisting guests in navigating the event space. Their active participation highlighted not only their capabilities but also their dedication to making the event welcoming.

A highlight of the evening was the engaging presentation delivered by Penny and Kira, who expressed the college’s vision for inclusive learning. The presentation provided a platform for parents and carers to understand how they can contribute to shaping the future of JRC's educational environment.

"It was truly heartening to witness our college community's enthusiasm and engagement. This event marks the beginning of what we hope to continue with a 'Parent Voices' group that will convene throughout the year." expressed the organisers.

Address: John Ruskin College, Selsdon Park Road, South Croydon, CR2 8JJ
