Welcome to the Parents Page

If you are a parent of a child who is due to start in our Foundation Stage class in September 2020 please look at the prospective parents tour dates and call the school office to book yourself onto one of the tours listed.


Supporting your child with learning at home


The school is following the New Curriculum that became statutory in September 2015. See below to find information about it.


There are many ways that you can suport your child's learning at home. In addition to the homework they may each week, finding time to read with your child regularly will make a huge difference to their progress in literacy.


The approach you take in reading with your child will vary depending on your child's ability. This may include reading poems and stories to your child, sharing a picture book and discussing the content, asking questions about what your child has read and so on.

The resources below include a prompt sheet on the strategy questions to use, a presentation and lists of the 44 phonemes. We hope you find them useful. Happy Reading!

If you'd like to look at online resources that the children can use to help their learning, go to the children's Fun and games page.

Parent Channel TV is an online service designed to support and encourage parents and carers of children aged 5-19, with a collection of videos addressing day-to-day questions and concerns spanning wellbeing, behaviour and learning.
