Benefiting from school reports

Parents in Touch

School reports give an important picture of your child's school year and show any areas which would benefit from extra help. We can show you how you can help with problem areas and get the best from your child's learning. Below, we have highlighted some of the comments often seen on school reports and included resources to help with each area. Trying some of the enjoyable resources on Parents in Touch will pay dividends come September.

Our eBook on Thinking Skills is the perfect support for the suggestions in this newsletter and an ideal way for you to support your child in developing these vital skills. Don't miss out - get your copy here today.
