Parental Help

We encourage parental involvement in all aspects of school life. We currently run phonics sessions in Reception where you can come along and learn how your child learns to read. We also run parent workshops where you can come and have a one to one session with your child, and one of our Higher Level Teaching Assisstants, in which you can see how your child is taught at school and learn how best to support them at home.

If you are unable to make any of these sessions the following leaflets may help you get started at home. 

How to help your child learn to write. 

How to help your child in Numeracy

 

How to help your child in reading. 

 

If your child is in Nursery-  On a Friday you can come and join in with our 'books with bunch' sessions either at the start of the morning or the start of the afternoon sessions. 

 

If your child is in Reception - you can come and read on a Monday morning with the children in class straight after drop off. 

 

We always welcome parental help on trips - just keep an eye out for letters that will be coming home via your child's class teacher. 

We often need help with cooking, art and design sessions and many many other subjects in school, so if you have a particular interest in the topic your child is learning or a particular talent in that area please let your child's class teacher know. We will then allocate a class and time to suit – we find that it usually works best if parents help in a class other than the class of their own child.

One very talented parent produced these upscaled drawing from Alice in Wonderland for Year One and Two's recent Mad Hatters Tea Party - they were gratefully received by the teachers and the children absolutely loved them!

If you are also interested in running an extra-curricular club please let the class teacher,headteacher or office staff know.
