Children benefit greatly from the mutual support of parents and teachers in encouraging them to learn both at home and at school.
Home Learning is anything that children do outside the normal school day. It can encompass a whole variety of activities.
Parents can support at home the work that is happening in school as outlined in their Individual Education Plan’s (I.E.P.’s). We consider it important that parents and families should take every opportunity to promote their child’s independent living skills.
The chance to practice self care, travel competence and domestic activities such as personal hygiene routines and making simple snacks provide pupils with the chance of achieving some independent living skills.
Reading books are sent home on a regular basis, this provides an ideal opportunity to share an activity with the family.
The home-school book will contain up to date comments on a child’s progress and how parents have helped at home.
