Supporting Learning at Home

The close link between home and school is one of the special strengths of the Partnership.

Children are encouraged to read at home each day and the children also have words to learn to help their spelling too.

We hold termly Learning Conversations with parents, which enables teachers, parents and children to discuss their learning and mutually agree next steps.  These learning conversations report on the child's progress in the Spring term and attainment in the Summer term in relation to their year group's age related expectations. They summarise points discussed in person and identify future learning expectations.

Each child also has a home/school diary and we hope you will use this to celebrate successful learning both at home and at school linked to our 10 Key Learning Characteristics .  As a Christian community we place great emphasis on the care of your child.  The class teacher has the day to day responsibility for your child’s welfare and is available to provide support or discuss problems.  You are most welcome to visit the school at any time, but if possible contact the office to make an appointment.  Teachers are available for a ‘chat’ in the playground after school but if you need a more formal meeting please make an appointment.

On this page,you will find details of some of the resources (online and otherwise) that you could use to support your child in their learning.

Spellodrome

Spellodrome helps children to develop critical spelling awareness through stimulation and support. It includes interactive and engaging games that make learning to spell fun! All four areas of spelling knowledge are covered: Visual, Phonological, Morphemic and Etymological. Both parents and students can keep track of progress to help recognise and experience a sense of pride and achievement.

Details of Parent drop in sessions and other Events

At both schools a range of half termly parent drop in sessions have been planned for parents to be able to join their children and engage in learning together in school. Parent drop in dates and times can be seen in the individual year group's weekly learning intention documents.
