How you can help your child
The most successful children know that their family supports them and shows an interest in their day to day school life.
- Talk to your child about what they are doing at school.
- Encourage them to find out things for themselves.
- Read books with your child. Take them to the local library and help them to choose books.
- Let your child help you in the kitchen and when you are doing other work in the home.
- Listen to your child. Encourage them to ask questions. If you do not have the answer, why not find out together?
Your child will bring home work each week which may include reading, spellings, writing, maths and topic work. Your interest in this will increase their motivation and satisfaction. It should not take a great deal of time and it is important that you see the work is completed and returned to school. If you have any concerns about your child's progress or learning, you should speak to your child's teacher in the first instance.
The safety and security of your children is paramount. If your child attends breakfast club, they come to school from 8am and must use the main entrance. The playground gates are opened at 8.40am and locked at 9am. Children arriving late should enter through the main entrance on Falkland Road.
Any adult arriving at school after 9am MUST sign in the visitors' book and all visitors must report to the school office on arrival. At the end of the school day the gates are opened at 3.15pm.
We have produced some useful booklets to support you as your child progresses through the school.
Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using technology. Whether on social media sites, through a mobile phone, or gaming sites, the effects can be devastating for the young person involved. There are ways to help prevent a child from being cyberbullied and to help them cope and stop the bullying if it does happen.
This advice is for parents and carers about cyberbullying. It provides advice and information about how they can protect their child from cyberbullying and how to tackle it if it happens.
The information included in this booklet will help you understand how we work to give your child the best possible start to their education and to let you know how you can help at home.
