Sharing our topic work with parents

Working in partnership with our school is vital for your children’s success.  Our open-door policy is key for comunication and gives you an opportunity to speak with your children’s class teacher on a daily basis.  We enjoy welcoming parents into class to see our learning in action at specific times of the year and like to help everyone understand the national curriculum and assessment procedures.

On this page you will find support materials to help you support your child’s learning at home, specifically around safeguarding, e-safety, mathematics and English.


Safeguarding of children is of vital importance to us.  Should you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us.  You can also refer to the NSPCC for more details and advice:



A further aspect of safeguarding is e-safety.  Over the last 20 years the use of the internet and mobile technology has rapidly changed for us and will feature strongly in the lives of our children.  Keeping up to date on e-safety can be challenging, the CEOP’s ThinkuKnow for Parents and Carers offers practical guidance for parents to help keep thier children safe on line.

Their website can be found at

Most recently West Sussex have also produced a new guide Keeping Your Child Safe Online.  This focussed particularly on child sexual exploitation and makes a very helpful read.

Should you like any further information please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the teaching team.
