Our Education begins at home (external link) campaign aims to provide you with information on supporting your child at home. Helping with homework, attending parents evenings and asking how they get on in school can all help with their school enjoyment.

From making time to read (external link) with your child and promoting a positive attitude towards numeracy (external link) you can help them get the most out of school.
