Supporting Learning at Home

We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Miss Mbuku and Miss Emmanuel.

Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.
