Helping your Child at Home

There is a great deal of research evidence suggesting that pupil performance can be improved if parents are aware of how they can support their child's learning at home.  Most of you are very willing to help, time permitting, and of course you want the best for your child, but it is not always easy for you to know how best to do this. The year group blogs on this website are useful in sharing what your child is doing in school and how you can help to support them in the main curriculum areas during the year.

There are some links below to also help you support your child.
