The biggest impact a parent can have on their child's education is to display a positive attitude and work in partnership with the school.

Effective communication between teachers and parents will ensure home and school work together for the benefit of the child.

Home learning can take many forms; be that reading, spelling and multiplication and handwriting practice.  Research around the topics studied - using the internet; visiting the library or places of interest.
