All children receive daily reading, weekly tables and weekly spellings.
However, we expect all our children to read at home from Reception classes onwards. We find this helps consolidate the skills they learn in school, enables the children to share their learning with parents and carers and for the older ones prepares them for their secondary school routine.
Children should bring home reading books every day and parents can help us by hearing their child read. Encouragement and interest from parents make a great difference to children’s progress in school.
Learning multiplication tables and spellings are also given as homework tasks and if these improve, then Numeracy and Literacy skills will generally improve with them.
If parents have any complaints about the Curriculum or the way it is being taught they should in the first instance contact Ms Kneale. If any issue is not resolved, further complaints should then be made to the Chair of Governors.
