Parental Support

Your parental support is vital to your child’s progress and education. Please support us by:

- Encouraging your child to complete and return homework on time and giving support where appropriate.
- Reading regularly at home with your child. Even as little as just 5 minutes daily, can help to improve your child's reading ability

- Letting us know if your child will be going home with someone else.

- Ensuring that your child brings the correct items to school each day, including their reading diary, spelling book and P.E kit.

Please note:

  • Our PE lessons take place on Monday afternoons and Friday afternoons
  • Spelling tests will take place on Thursday mornings
  • Homework will be set on a Thursday to be completed by the following Thursday
