Parents  »  Supporting Your Child at Home

This content has been designed to help you get the most from the involvement you can have with your child's learning at home. It offers suggestions on how parents and children can work at home. We recognise that parents are a child's first and enduring teachers. They play a crucial role in helping their children learn. We believe that children achieve more when schools and parents work together and when parents understand how they can help. Please do refer to your child's school planner which has a wide range of learning resources for you to access with your child.
