Please become involved in your child’s work – it will help them to be more successful!
All our children are encouraged to appreciate and enjoy books and reading, and parental cooperation is vital in this respect. We encourage parents to hear their children read on a daily basis and are always happy to provide advice to parents on reading and the choice of reading material.
We hope that parents will become actively involved in, and supportive of, their children’s learning. It is important that parents ensure that homework is completed as required and that they provide a suitable place for their child to work.
