How will you help me support my child's learning?

(Updated July 2019)

  • Parental help can range from hearing their child read daily, with a focus on whether the child has understood the text, to playing games such as learning the pairs of numbers that make 10 (number bonds).
  • The class teacher is regularly available to discuss your child’s progress or any concerns you may have and to share information about what is working well at home and school so similar strategies can be used. If your child is on our SEN register you will be invited to each Parents evening to discuss your child's individual support plan (Assess, Plan, Do, Review).
  • These meetings with teachers centre around how parents can support children in receipt of an Assess, Plan, Do, Review record. During the academic 2019/20 year we are trialling adding a home target onto the Assess, Plan, Do record so that we can record the progress that children are making with their learning at home and help with advice.
  • The SENCo is available to meet with you to discuss your child’s progress or any concerns/worries you may have.
  • All information from outside professionals will be discussed with you with the person involved directly, or where this is not possible, in a report.
  • Homework may be adjusted as needed to your child’s individual needs.
  • A home/school contact book may be used to support communication with you, when this has been agreed to be useful for you and your child.
