How you can help us

We appreciate that after a long day the last thing you and your child may want to focus on is school. However, research shows parents' active involvement with their child's education at home and in school brings great rewards and can have a significant impact on their child's life.

Below are some little things that will benefit your child greatly as well as helping us at school.

  • Read with your child — reading aloud is the most important activity that parents can do to increase their child's chance of reading success (children should aim to read to an adult at least 3 times a week)
  • Discuss the books and stories you read with your child - this helps develop their knowledge and understanding of the world 
  • Help your child organise his/her time and resources - get your child to pack their bag and remember what they need for each day
  • Talk to your child regularly about what's going on in school- who knows... what they've learnt may surprise you!
  • Check homework - we don't mean do it for them, but a little helping hand goes a long way!
