Supporting your child at home

The best thing you can do to support your child is talk to them about what they're learning. Spend a short amount of time each day (around 10 minutes) listening to your child read, practise their spelling and times tables - and contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.

Supporting Your Child's Mental Health

You will have heard a lot in the news about children's mental health. A recent study by the NHS indicated that as many as 4 children in a class of 30 could be living with serious emotional disorders. Worryingly, 80% of parents felt that they aren't as equipped to deal with  mental health issues as they would like to be.

In response to this, Action For Children and The Children's Society have collaborated to produce a guide to help families understand and offer thorough support if their children experience anxiety.
