Ideas to help your child at home

We all know that children learn best when school works on partnership with home. 

At St Andrew's CE Primary School Home learning is designed to further develop the home/school partnership by providing opportunities for children, parents and school to learn together to support and enhance the children’s learning. Parental involvement and in particular, talking about home learning, is vital to maximise children’s progress.

Our school believes that home learning should:

  • Involve parents and carers in their child’s education  
  • Have a clear learning focus.
  • Give plenty of opportunities for children to succeed.
  • Consolidate and reinforce a wide variety of skills and understanding in a supportive environment.
  • Extend learning that has taken place in school.
  • Provide children with the opportunity to learn in different settings
  • Reflect a range of learning styles and be varied – not just written tasks.
  • Encourage children to talk about what they are learning
  • Encourage children to develop the self-confidence and discipline needed to study independently
  • Prepare children for the transition to secondary school
  • Be manageable for teachers
  • Develop progressively according to the age of the children
