The most important things that you can do to help your child at school is to show an interest in their work, listen to and talk to your child about their school day, support them to complete their homework on time and, very importantly, listen to them read as often as you can. Not every child feels comfortable about sharing their worries with their teachers, so please get in touch with us straight away if your child is expressing anxiety or if you have any concerns or questions about their school work or about their wellbeing at school. All of the teacher’s email addresses are on the school website on the staff section.
We also love to see parents coming into school – this can really help motivate children to learn. Many times during the year, parents will be invited into school to attend special events and performances held to showcase children’s learning, or to attend sports days, fair’s and other special events.
If you would like to be even more involved and help out in school on a regular basis, we are always looking out for parents to come into school and listen to a child read. Please contact Mrs Gardner on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining our parent reader team.
