How else can you help?
• Please let staff know of anything that happens at home that may impact on your child’s behaviour/ ability to learn at school.
• Please ensure that your child gets enough sleep and eats healthily. If you have any concerns, please see the school nurse. (Number available from the office).
• Limit screen time, especially before bedtime.
• Talk to your child in your first language!
• Invite friends round for play dates
• Please visit an optician to have your child’s vision tested. This is not done in school.
If you have any problems or concerns, please discuss them with your child’s teacher in the first instance. However, if you have an urgent question please contact the school office.
