Getting Involved

How can you help your child progress at school?

  1. Be interested. Make sure your child knows you are interested in what they have done at school and what they are learning. The school holds termly 'Meet the Teacher' sessions after school to appraise you of the topics for that term however don't be afraid of asking your child's teacher for further information at other times.
  2. Read. Please read with your child for ten to twenty minutes or more each day. You could read to them or listen to them read to you. It doesn't have to be a school book, it can be books from home, newspapers, leaflets, the internet and comics. Try to keep it fun and interesting for you both.
  3. Maths Basic Skills. Practice number bonds, basic adding and subtracting, times tables and quick answers to maths questions as often as you can. Practising these skills is easy and it keeps the mind sharp. This will really help children progress in maths at school.
  4. Homework. Children receive homework  on the same day each week.  This is set predominantly via your child's DB Primary. Please check their DB Primary account and book bags, and help them with  any homework given.
