Home Learning Year 2

Welcome to the Help at Home part of our website. We know that sometimes families might need a bit of extra help or advice at home. This can be to do with knowing about good behaviour strategies or services that are available through the council or keeping children safe. We don’t know all the answers but certainly try to find out. We will check the inbox on a daily basis and will liase with other agencies to get the best possible support and advice. If the school is closed, it will be an opportunity to get informal help through school which we are happy to do. We will get back to any contact from parents seeking advice on the same day except during weekends and ‘official’ holidays.
