One Childhood - One Chance

Support Material for Parents

Whether you are just interested in what your child is doing at school or want to specifically support them, all the information you need is here on the website.

On our Maths page (click here) we have the entire White Rose Curriculum that the school follow so that you can keep up-to-date with exactly what your child will be learning and support them if you wish. If you would like to work with your child on an area of Maths they struggle with then additional questions for each year group can be found here  and termly Maths Challenges can be found here.

In English, our text-based curriculum is displayed here and gives details of the books children will be studying and the content for each year group. A Grammar Guide for Parents is available at the bottom of this page,  as are Key Questions you can Ask your Child when they read to you. If you would like to help your child with a particular area of English they might be having difficulty with then additional English questions can be found here.

For other subjects, the curriculum for each term is shown on the relevant pages following the link here.

Schools can have a tendency to use 'education jargon' that can often leave parents and carers confused.  Our staff look to explain educational terms and abbreviations where possible - please don't hesitate to ask us if ever there's a time when you are unsure of a term or phrase used.  To assist with breaking down barriers, we have produced a glossary of education terms for you.  Please click here to access the document.
