Reading Together

Reading with children at home is fun and prepares them for what they can expect at school.

Reading interests will change from bedtime stories to comics, magazines, newspapers, Guinness World Record books, novels and non-fiction books.

Talk with your children and explain why you like reading.

Links to websites containing useful information and resources to help with your childrens reading are listed below. Click on the icons to view them.

Website for parents at www.parentchannel.tv

This is a new online service that has been launched by Parenting UK and partners, as part of the Government's Parent Know How Innovation Fund.

The website offers parents short and engaging videos about problems they may face as parents. It provides a new way of supporting parents and carers, especially those not currently accessing services.
 

The videos are designed for parents with children from the ages of 5-19 and range across three main categories of learning, behaviour and well-being. Through the website and videos, parents will be offered practical advice delivered by parents and experts combined with signposting to other resources and organisations.Click on the icon below.

 

 Safe use of the Internet

The school recognises that, under certain circumstances, the Internet can give children access to undesirable information and images. In school we have done all that is possible to ensure children are protected from such information through the use of security software, limiting of features and rules for use. The children are taught to use computers sensibly and with proper consideration for others.

We recommend that parents and carers using the Internet at home with their children develop similar rules and invest in appropriate software.

The "THINKUKNOW" website provided by The Child Exploitation and On Line Protection Centre, part of the National Crime Agency, provides on-line safety advice for parents. Please click on the icon below to access.
