Following the popular parenting course ‘Parentalk’ that is taking place at Cherwell this term, there will be an evening workshop on Tuesday March 28th to help parents and carers tackle and talk about the issue of pornography and internet safety presented by the Naked Truth Project. The workshop is open to all parents and carers from Cherwell school and Wolvercote and Cutteslowe Primary Schools .
