Top Tips

Top tips to help your child get the most out of school:

  • Attending school every day and arriving on time will help give your child the best possible start in life.
  • Be aware of the impact of regular absences – missing school is missing out.

  • Every day counts, your child can attend school with minor illnesses such as coughs and colds.

  • Prepare school bags the night before, keep an eye on homework progress and support your child with their learning.

  • Tired children find it hard to learn so ensure your child has a sensible bed time to ensure they are up bright and early for school.

  • Children can become unsettled and anxious if they arrive late. Getting children to school on time to meet friends in the yard prevents this. We also have a free breakfast club.

  • There are 190 days in school which leaves 175 days for holidays, appointments, shopping and family celebrations.

  • Don’t assume training days are the same for every school, look out for information on the website and if unsure ask school.
