Helping Your Child at Home

We want to work with parents, as a team

Children are developing very quickly during their years at the Infant School. We do all we can to make the most of this time of mental absorbency and we would encourage you as parents to do your best to encourage reading, speech, fun mathematical games, and general confidence developing during the children's time out of school. This area is designed to give you some helpful hints.
