Parent Partnership

 Helping your child at home

We feel that you can really make a difference to your child's academic progress but parents have requested support in doing this. Below are links to videos and websites where you can practically help your child at home, while at the same time developing their speech, language, communication, numeracy and literacy skills.

If you feel there are other areas of the curriculum that you would like support with, please inform the school.
