In reaching for the stars every child will achieve their goals and fulfill their true potential.

Supporting your child's learning

Research shows that when school and parents work together children are more successful in their learning.  There are a number of things that you can do that will really help your child:

  • Attend Parents' Evenings
  • Talk about what your child has been learning about in school
  • Find out more about learning by attending curriculum sessions for parents
  • Participate in workshops
  • Help in school
  • Support home learning

Home learning

We encourage the children to complete activities at home to enhance their learning. All children will have a reading book to share at home and the children can also access e-books on the Bug Club website. Children in KS1 will be encouraged to learn weekly spellings and maths activities on Abacus will also be sent home in KS1. In Reception the children will bring home sounds books to help them learn their phonics and will also have tricky words to learn. The reception children can also borrow maths games to play at home.

Some children may be given alternative or supplementary tasks to support particular aspects of their learning, e.g. spelling and handwriting.


Please look on the Home Learning page  in the Parents & Families tab for useful websites to support your child's learning.
