Curriculum Support

  • At the start of every school year you are invited to an information session with your child’s class teacher where ideas will be shared.

  • Your child is expected to read at home everyday.

  • Your child will also be given homework.

  • The most important way you can help your child is to show an interest in what they do at school, ensure they attend regularly, eat a nutritious breakfast and get plenty of sleep.


You can really help your child by talking to them about what they have done at school but some children are more forthcoming than others.  


To help you support your child, our curriculum pages have an overview of what your child will be learning each term as well as ideas to help specific to their class and topics.


We hold workshops throughout the year, sometimes by ages of children, where teachers tell you how we teach Maths and English. Additionally, we hold Family Fun sessions, which is an opportunity to engage in some learning and activities with your child within school. 


Reading has astonishing benefits for children: comfort and reassurance, confidence and security, relaxation, happiness and fun. Giving a child time and full attention when reading them a story tells them they matter. It builds self-esteem, vocabulary, feeds imagination and even improves their sleeping patterns.
