What can you do to help with your child's learning?

Support with daily reading, learning times tables and homework in general. The Abacus online learning programme is available for Maths to support all children at home in their learning. There is also Times Table Rockstars and Spelling shed to support spellings. Purple Mash is also available to support your child's learning in every topic area. If you would like any further assistance in any of the above, then please speak to your class teacher.


What to do if you have a concern or a problem

Please arrange to see your class teacher by organising an appointment through the office. If you have any further concerns, please arrange to see Mr Houghton or Mrs Holt who will be happy to speak to you at any time.



Pupils should be in the correct school uniform at all times in accordance with school policy. All children should wear a white shirt with school jumper and tie along with a grey/black skirt or trousers. School shoes should be plain black.  Trainers are not permitted. We appreciate your support in following this policy.



Work will be sent home weekly for children in Upper Key Stage 2. This will include weekly spellings to learn and other pieces consisting of English, Mathematics or topic homework. In addition to this, we also ask that you read little and often with your child; all children are provided with a reading book and reading record to track their efforts at home.

Also, we send home termly topic challenges relating to the area of study that pupils are learning about that term. This may include an art project or a writing task that can be completed at home with the help of parents or carers; these tasks are optional and are rewarded with team points and rainbow rewards in school.
