Learning At Home
We greatly value the voluntary help of parents. The support of parents is vital in ensuring a child achieves their best.
An active and co-operative partnership between home and school plays a beneficial and important role in children’s education. We have drawn up an agreement highlighting how school and parents can contribute to this aim.
Reading at Home
Children are expected to practise reading at home on a daily basis. Reading at home can have a huge impact on how quickly a child learns to read and improve. Reading at home should include reading aloud as well as discussions about the text read, please download full guidance notes below for more support and advice. Please make time to hear your child read for 10 minutes each night.

A huge thank you to those parents who help with homework each week. We can really see the progress the children are making and the huge successes they are having. Please make sure that your child's does complete their homework each week. This is vital for your child to reach their full potential in all areas of learning but most vitally in Communication and Language, Maths and Literacy.
The partnership between school and home is VITAL, and really accelerates learning.
If you are ever in need of clarification on homework please speak to your child's class teacher.
As you may be aware, children can access a range of social media and apps. It is important to remember that social media has age restrictions and that software developers are constantly changing and updating their apps.
If your child has a social media account, please follow the guidance on the age restrictions. Please also make sure that the privacy settings are high and you know who children are in contact or friends with. Please report anything that you find and talk to your children about how to keep themselves safe online – particularly talking to people they don’t know.
Below are a range of useful links to support you to help keep your children safe online. You can also download a copy of the DfE advice for parents and carers on cyberbullying.
