Triple P - Positive Parenting Programme

Triple P is one of the world's most effective parenting programmes. It gives parents the skills they need to raise confident, healthy children, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehaviour and prevent problems occuring in the first place. With more than 30 years of ongoing research, Triple P has been scientifically trialled with thousands of families around the world, and has been successful for most families within a wide range of cultures, countries and situations. Triple P has helped more than 4 million children and their families in 25 countries worldwide.


If you are interested in joining the programme, please speak to Mrs Cameron or Miss Moss.
