Supporting Your Child’s Education

Children should read with an adult every night and record how many pages they have read in their Home-School Link Book. The adult should then comment and sign.

We continue to encourage children to take a variety of work home, thus hoping to promote an enthusiasm for learning beyond the bounds of the school environment and to foster parental involvement. Throughout their school life, children may be asked to find out information at home and utilise resources within their community connected with topic work in which they are currently involved.

Please refer to the timetable in the front of your child’s Home-School Link Book, which should provide a guide to how long should be spent on homework. Presentation of homework should be of the highest standard. The Home-School Link Book must be signed each week and can also be used to communicate any problems or concerns involving your child, and if so, please ensure the child makes the teacher aware of this message.
