Resources to help at home

Under normal circumstances we do not set official 'homework' tasks for children as the research on its effectiveness at Primary level is at best inconclusive.  We do ask that you take an interest in your child's learning journey, share any important information with us, and try to read daily with them.  We also send home spellings, wizard words and high frequency words for English and we have maths 'passports' to help children become fluent in key skills.  If you are able to look at these 'little and often' this can help your child be more confident in their learning.

However, due to the risks associated with Covid 19, we have a revised home-school learning policy in place and you can find more information here.  Please note our main learning platform is Tapestry, and if you do not have log-in details you should contact the school office.

Here are links to how to help you understand more about what we teach and how we teach it, and to help you help your child at home if you wish to do so.
